I was given this Madiba Shweshwe fabric almost a year ago and I really wanted to make something special out of it.
After a few measurements and plans, I decided to create 2 cushion covers. To make the most use of the fabric, I cut 1 length of fabric for each cushion -50cm x 100cm. Added an invisible zip on the 50cm length side and then stitched together the 2 side seams. Total sewing time less than 1 hour.
The zip will be either at the top or bottom of the cushion, depending of how the cushion is placed on sofa. Front and back of cushion are the same print (but one is upside down)
Ta da! Don’t these look great!
Finished dimensions of cushion cover 48cm x 48cm – suitable for 50cm x 50cm cushion.
