I have just decided I want to make cushions. I have a sewing machine (need to learn how to use it smile) and some cushion pads and lots of enthusiasm.

All the gear, no idea. So where can I go to find out how to make cushions? There seem to be lots of tutorials for envelope cushions but I'd really like more options and good clear inspiring pictures.

TIA

Pinterest will have lots of free tutorials as will youtube.

Ah, the joy of finishing a concealed zip on a cushion...... smile

A good starter book is "Making Cushion Covers" by Debbie Shore. Amazon sell it for £6. There is a good range of different techniques to start you off.

She also has several YouTube videos demonstrating her techniques.
