Flange Edged Cushions
Saturday 5 June

Saturday 5 June 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Flange Edged Cushion

Flange Edged CushionCreate a cushion that is a step above the ordinary in this workshop. A flange edge creates interest and personality without the fuss and added skills needed for a piped edge. As this edge is easy to achieve, this workshop is great for people with basic sewing skills keen to develop further as well as those with more sewing experience.

The closure on the back of this cushion is an invisible zip. Fear not…..these are much easier than you think!

In the workshop you will learn:

  • How to cut from a pattern
  • How to insert an invisible zip
  • How to turn through a square corner
  • How to create a flange edge
