MAKE A ZIPPED CUSHION COVER - KIT INCLUDED (Beginner - Intermediate) has a rating of stars based on reviews.


Take your home styling up a notch with this beginner-friendly sewing workshop. Cushion covers are the perfect finishing touch to your living room and bedroom, and they are super easy to make. 

Making a cushion cover with an invisible zip closure at the bottom gives you the freedom to use two contrasting fabrics that you can flip around depending on your mood. The invisible zip is hidden at the bottom of the cushion and with our super easy method, you’ll be whipping these up in no time.

We’ll teach you how to measure for different cushion sizes and you’ll make your pattern to fit your cushion for the workshop.

A kit worth £15 will be provided in the workshop which includes the fabric, zip & cushion pad. Please note the fabric will be different to the one in the image.

Sewing machines: 

Various sewing machines will be provided, however, we promote people bringing their own sewing machine. If you are bringing your own sewing machine, please email after booking so that we can confirm your machine is suitable. If you bring your own machine, please bring an empty bobbin for the machine and all the parts that came with the machine. Don’t forget the foot pedal and cords! Your machine needs to have a zipper presser foot (most machines come with one).

Skills needed: This class is designed for beginners that know their way around a sewing machine. Basic skills are fine, we'll help with tension.
