Use a foam brush to wet part of the fab­ric and then an­other brush to dab on dif­fer­ent-coloured fab­ric paints to cre­ate a wa­ter­colour ef­fect. Drop wa­ter on top of the paints, too, to help mix the colours. Once the fab­ric is com­pletely dry, cut into one 42 x 42cm piece and two 42 x 30cm pieces. Hem the two smaller pieces along one 42cm edge on each. Place the large piece right side up and lay one smaller piece right side down on top, with the un­hemmed 42cm side lin­ing up with the outer edge. Place the sec­ond small panel right side down on the others, keep­ing the un­hemmed edge on the other side. Pin in place and sew all the way round be­fore turn­ing the right way out and in­sert­ing the cush­ion in­ner.
