About the Course
This workshop will teach you how to make your own mattress cushion. The skills learnt across the weekend can then be transferred into making your own at home for a window sill, day bed, floor cushions, garden seat cushions or even dog bed. The sample we make in class will have a foam insert covered in wadding and will measure approx. 40 x 40 cms. You will start by cutting and covering the foam in wadding before machine stitching a box cover. An ideal fabric for this is a linen or linen union fabric. Students will need to provide their own. 1 metre should be enough. You will then mark out and use French mattress stitches to create that lovely edging before finally making your own covered buttons or traditional tuft buttons to finish it off. This class is designed for students with some sewing machine experience.
