Learn how to make your own unique cushions from fabric scraps.
This scrappy cushion workshop will show you how to make your own unique fabric from scraps. Then you will turn it into a lovely new cushion for your home.
This workshop is an offshoot from the popular ‘Rags to Riches’. It borrows one of the techniques used in that class to create a stunning, embroidered textile piece. Then you have the opportunity to make your gorgeous embellished panel into a cushion, using either the ‘envelope’ method, or to add a zip closure.
Your scrappy cushion will be completely unique and the envy of your friends. Perhaps you'd prefer to learn how to make a bag? Then hy not try Rags to Bags instead?
