Snow-capped moun­tain cush­ions are a novel fin­ish­ing touch for a kid’s room.

Cush­ions for the young ex­plorer

NZ House & Garden - - CONTENTS - STYLING KENDYL MIDDELBEEK

We made: Two cute moun­tain cush­ions.

You’ll need: Half a me­tre of coloured felt per cush­ion, a small amount of white felt for the snow caps, cush­ion stuff­ing and a sewing ma­chine. To make: Create a moun­tain tem­plate and use it to cut out the two sides of the cush­ion. Use the tem­plate to cut snow caps in the white felt. Pin these to the moun­tain shapes and sew along the bot­tom of the snow cap only. Pin and sew the two moun­tain pieces to­gether (snow caps fac­ing in), leav­ing a sec­tion of the bot­tom open for stuff­ing. Turn the cush­ion, push seams out and stuff. Slip stitch the open­ing closed.
