Welcome to ‘make my day’ : 30 days of sewing sessions with Miss Libby Rose. xx
We are making a strawberry envelope cushion with appliqué.
You will need 1 x piece of main fabric (preferably cotton or poly cotton mix) 16″ x 36″
Fabric picture: I have cut out a strawberry shape in pink with green little leaves – but you choose what you’d like.
Hearts and stars are a good beginners appliqué ideas.
Cut out your fabric picture in ‘BONDAWEB’
Fold down the two smaller ends 1cm x 1cm and stitch this seam on each side.
Fold the cushion in an envelope to get the front of the cushion- lay your appliqué, bondaweb and iron in place.
Zig-zag stitch around the edges of the appliqué.
Re-fold your main fabric into an envelope shape again with right sides together and sew up..
HURRAY! you have now finished your project..
