Introduction: Knitted Cushion

Picture of Knitted Cushion

One of my favourite decor items in my living room are my cushions. It's amazing how they make the whole space feel cozy and it's easy to replace them to match the spring decor, holiday or even Halloween.

Now that winter is coming knitted cushion covers will give my living room a warm atmosphere. And by making them by myself I'll save a lot of money.

But don't worry you don't have to spend hours with your knitting needles, we'll take a shortcut.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

A cushion

A knitted scarf

Matching fabric

Scissors

Thread

Needle

Measuring tape

Step 2: Measure and Cut

Picture of Measure and Cut

Begin by measuring the cushion. Add one inch and cut the fabric.

Cut the scarf the same size as the fabric, because the scarf is thinner than the fabric, we'll need two pieces of scarf to match the size of the fabric.

Step 3: Hand Sewing

Sew by hand the two pieces of scarf and sew the buttons where the two parts meet.

Step 4: Sew

With good sides facing, sew the two squares, all the perimeter but leave an opening (5-8 in).
