  • Tapestry cushion fronts

    First, apologies if I'm in the wrong thread! I'm new and don't know my way round very well yet.

    I've completed a tapestry cushion front that came without instructions as too how to make it up. Is anyone able to give me some hints as to how to neaten the edge and how to attach the backing fabric, etc.?

    Many thanks

      I'm no expert but I would assume it would be similar to what we had to do for a cross stitch cushion cover we did a while ago. After finishing the pattern we drew all the ends through to the wrong side, put it face to face with the cushion back, put the backing fabric on to the top and machine round 3 sides, ease the corners turn it right side in put the cushion inside, tuck in the edges and finish the last side

      does that make sense

        I always back mine first ie so that the reverse side does not show inside the cushion, then cut the backing piece, insert a zip then join the other 3 sides.

          As an alternative, you could applique it on to an existing cushion cover.

            Thanks!

            Thank you for your replies. I was really wondering what to do with the edge of the canvas as it has very large holes, so is quite tough.

              If you stitch an extra couple of rows round the outside then you can sew the back on between the picture and the extra rows.

                What a good idea! I had plenty of wool left over so could easily have done that. Thanks!
