Thank you for joining me for what we decided to call #tutorialtuesday. We learnt some new skills and techniques and had some fabulous products which will all be loaded to the website super soon!

At the moment, I’m a little distracted writing patterns for our new #Lockdownlivinginloveliness lives. Join me Monday 9th November at 6:30pm where I’ll share full details how you can get involved. There is no cost to get involved and, as always, I’ll be lead by live feedback to deliver more hints, tips and tutorials live.

The Make

During the live, I demonstrated how to make a piped envelope cushion. If you would like to make one yourself, the measurements are as follows:

Front panel

Cut 1 piece 15.5” x 15.5”

Envelope back

Cut 2 pieces 9.5” x 15.5”


Cut 1 x 2.5” x 15.5

Piping (see the tutorial how to cut and join strips to do this)

Cut 2.5” x 74”

During the live tutorial you were shown how to:

  • cut biased binding
  • make your own piping
  • add binding to your envelope back
  • double hem the envelope back
  • add binding to the cushion
