{Quick Tutorial} Ruffle Cushion

Hello blog followers!  Lovely to have you with us...

I just had to share this project as its super quick and super cute!  I know you're going to become addicted to making ruffle cushions in every colour to match every room.  Plus, the best bit is, it uses just one fat quarter and some ribbon - how easy is that!?

First things first this is what you'll need....

1 fabric FQ - mines from the Riley Blake Daisy Cottage Collection
Pins, Thread, Cushion/Toy stuffing, Sewing Machine

1. Start pinning your ribbon, about 3 inches in from one of the short edges of your fat quarter.  It doesnt need to be precise, just tuck it under and pin to keep in place until you sew it.

2. Once you've gone all the way down, machine sew into place using a long straight stitch.

3. Fold in half right sides together and pin in place.  Sew around two and a half edges so you have space to put the filling in.

4. Stuff with cushion filling and close the opening, and voila!  Very simple but very effective ruffle cushion....

I wasnt lying when I said they are easy!  Infact, I love them so much, I made another two from the Daisy Cottage fabric for our playroom...

I'd say they took around 30 - 45 minutes to make and I'd made three in just under an hour and a half.  The bit that takes the longest is pinning the ruffles!

So go give it a go!! Would love to see any ruffle cushions you make.
