Stencilled Stag Cushion Cover
The idea for this cushion popped into my head and I just had to make it.

Turns out it wasn't as simple as I first thought, with getting the trim in evenly around the whole cushion proved tricky, but with a little work I got it all figured out (so if you have any questions about any of it then just ask :) )

Or if you love the cover as much as I do, but would prefer just to buy it then it's available for sale in my etsy shop :)

  • Step 1

    Start by measuring two squares of fabric, mine were 16" x 16" with a 1" seam allowence

  • Step 2

    Make a stencil.
    My favourite way to do this is to trace the outline of the design you want onto paper, then cut it out with a craft knife.

    Use double sided sticky tape to stick your stencil to the front side of your cushion cover.

    Use acrylic paint to fill in your stencil. I find using a sponge with a dabbing motion creates much more precise lines towards the edges of the stencil than a paintbrush does.

  • Step 3

    Let the paint dry, then iron it to set the paint.

  • Step 4

    Position your trim into place on one of your cushion pieces, with the bobbles facing inwards and sew it into place along 3 of the edges.

    Place the other cushion piece on top of this, and sew along the same lines, to sandwich the trim in the seams

  • Step 5

    Fold over your remaining free edge and iron down.

    Pin a final piece of trim along this edge and sew it into place

  • Step 6

    Stitch your zip into this opening, and you're done :)
