    Madiba Cushion Covers

    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…

    African print cushion covers

    I had some fabric left over from the lengths Dylan gave me to make his Party Pants…. so what better way to make use of the fabric than to construct some African print cushion covers for Dylan’s sister in South Africa. These covers fit cushions of 60cm x 60cm, have 6 ties on the back to secure the covers – makes for interesting back design and also very functional. I think these look great – What do you think?
