Make a… house cush­ion

Cross Stitcher - - For Your Home -

Step 1

CUT your stitch­ing to the same size as your back­ing fabric, mak­ing sure the house is in the cen­tre of the fabric. Place your stitch­ing and back­ing fabric right-sides to­gether, and then sew around three sides of the fabric, with a 1.25cm (½in) seam al­lowance, leav­ing the bot­tom open for turn­ing.

Step 2

TURN to the right side. Fill with toy stuff­ing, and then sew up the bot­tom with small, neat stitches, or by ma­chine. If you want to use your house as a door stop, then fill a strong food bag with play sand, and in­sert into the bot­tom of the cush­ion af­ter you have filled it with toy stuff­ing. Sew up the cush­ion as be­fore.
