Form 6’s Cushions

This term Form 6 have designed and made cushion covers. They chose a design using circles, rectangles or squares and made a paper pattern with these shapes. They then cut out shapes in contrasting felt colours and pinned the shapes onto the cotton cover. They stitched on the shapes using running stitch, whipped running stitch and cross stitch. They added sequins and buttons to finish their design. Mrs Blok machine sewed a back cover and when a cushion pad was inserted they had their completed cushions.

The results are excellent, all very different and well made.
