Gail Chenille and Weave Cushion

Chenille and weave cushion

Below is the list for cushion front, we will discuss the back in class.


18" square of calico

¾ meter of white flannel fabric

¾ meter heat n bond or similar fusible

Section of fabrics for weaving, as many or few colours as you like, a good way to use up scraps or a great excuse to get more fabric. I used 22 different fabrics as they were left over from a quilt you could use some from your stash and add a few new.

You will need a total of 22 strips 1½" x 18" please pre cut before class to save time.

We will discuss the option of adding buttons on the day, full instructions to complete the cushion back will be supplied.

Coordinating thread for your machine, and a reel of white thread.

Rotary cutter and ruler
