My brother got married this weekend! And I wanted to make a few gifts that had a real personal meaning for them, without costing any money...easy right? :)
I already had a cushion form and the fabric, and a crafty friend had brought me over some freezer paper to try out for the first time.
So I decided to make a cushion showing where their love story began. (York)
Here's the how to:
First off I measured the wrap around width of my cushion and added about five inches, then folded each side over 1/4 an inch, ironed and then repeated.
I then googled "UK" under images and made one of them fill the screen and traced it onto the freezer paper. Then I just spent a few minutes cutting it out and centered it on the fabric.
Iron it on until it's stuck down fully, mine bubbled a little but didn't matter at all.
Then peel off your paper. At this point I was SO giddy! I couldn't believe how well it worked!
Pretty sweet! :)
Leave it to dry over night and then embroider a heart over where they met/married (this is both for them!).
Then with the image facing up fold in the sides so that the width is the same as your cushion (or just under), then pin so the sides overlap and sew down the raw edges. Snip the corners and turn and stuff.
Done! Cute, personal and cheap or free! And you get a little sneak peak at the whole hamper I managed to put together for the wedding.
Can't wait to show you the whole thing!
