black felt or fabric
black thread for applique
thread to match cushion fabric
bond-a-web or similar
Measure your cushion form and add 1.5cm for the seam allowance.
That will be size of your cushion front
Cut out the fabric.....
For the back you need 2 pieces of fabric, the height needs to be approximatley 2/3's of the height of the front piece plus 1cm for the hem, the width is the same as the front piece.
For example, my cushion form is 36cm x 36cm
My front piece therefore will be 37.5cm x 37.5cm
The back pieces will be
height of the front piece/3 x 2 then add 1cm for the hem.
37.5cm/3 x 2 which is 25cm + 1cm for the hem.
so I cut out
37.5cm x 37.5cm
37.5cm x 26cm (cut 2)
Applique the design....
Print out the ninja from the file at the bottom of this post.
Put your bond-a-web over the top of the ninja and trace around it.
Iron the bond-a-web onto the back of the black felt.
Cut out the ninja.
Peel off the backing paper and iron the ninja to the centre of the front piece of fabric.
Use an applique stitch if you have one or a small zig-zag and sew around the edge of the ninja, at some points you may need to turn the fabric, to do this lower the needle so that it is in the fabric, lift the presser foot and gently move the fabric round. Lower the presser foot and continue sewing.
Prepare the back pieces...
Fold over the long edge by 1cm and press.
Lay the front piece on the table, right side up.
