You will learn: - How to insert a concealed zip - How to add piping - How to add a frill of other trim Adding some piping or a frill takes a cushion to a new level. You can have fun playing with colour contrasts and really improve your sewing skills and knowledge. If you would like to choose your own fabric, please bring half a metre for your cushion, plus half a meter for either piping or a frill. A medium weight cotton or linen are easiest to work with and appropriate for this project. Please avoid velvet or any fabric with a nap.
