I saw these oversized nautical tea-towels in Lincraft for $2 each and quickly snapped up all 13 of them for the possibilities they held in store.
With the edges already sewn, they are perfect for quick, easy and neat cushion cases, just add a zip and insert and the job is done!
What you will need -
- An oversized tea-towel
- A sewing machine
- A zippper
- A cushion insert
The Easy Cushion from a Tea-Towel
Firstly attach the zipper to the shorted edge, leaving some overhang so that the zipper is not visible once the cushion is finished. Using a zipper foot, I attach the first edge with the zipper closed then open the zipper to attach it to the other side.
Next we need to sew the edges closed. I turn the cushion the right way in and follow the existing stitching at the edges. This takes about 2 seconds.
