Make a piped cushion cover

Make a piped cushion cover


In this workshop we’ll go through the various stages in creating a cushion cover with a zip closure in the back and covered piping cord around the edges.
This is a practical workshop going over the different techniques in its construction:
• Measuring tips for cutting the right size fabric
• Putting a lapped zip into the back
• how to create bias binding to cover piping cord
• how to decorate the edge with the piping

We’ll then go through the various stages of putting the cushion cover together.
You’ll come away with a practical sample to refer back to, NOT a completed cushion.

There will be notes and step-by-step guidance to ensure you can replicate the cover in your chosen fabric at a later date.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
