Make a… cush­ion

Cross Stitcher - - Pugs & Kisses -

Step 1

COM­PLETE all the stitch­ing, then cut the aida to 46x30.5cm (18x12in), with the de­sign in the cen­tre.

Step 2

PLACE the cush­ion front right-sides to­gether with the back­ing fab­ric. Pin the lay­ers to­gether with the pom-pom trim be­tween, then ma­chine stitch around the edge with a 1.25cm (½in) seam al­lowance, leav­ing a gap for turn­ing.

Step 3

TURN to the right side, in­sert the cush­ion pad and sew up the gap with small, neat stitches.

It’s im­por­tant to stick to an ivory shade of fab­ric, as this, as op­posed to any stitch­ing, makes up a large por­tion of the colour of the pug’s fur
