Pump up your pillows by constructing a new cushion cover — in no time at all! Here are Mary Dobson’s instructions:
Fabric, thread, pins, scissors, ruler and cushion form.
Measure the width and add 2 inches. Measure the length of the cushion, double and add 8 inches.
Cut one layer of fabric to this size.
Turn, press and stitch a double 1 inch hem at end of the fabric.
Turn the top end down 4 inches, right sides together. Bring the bottom end up to cover the turned top flap and align it with the top fold, again right sides together.
Machine stitch both side edges through all layers using a 1 inch seam allowance.
Trim, overcast edges and flip right side out.
Insert cushion form and work into the corners. Bring the top flap over the cushion form to completely cover.
