We went over why we love glass cloths and how they can even be handy in the laundry room in issue 22 – here’s our bonus project for how to turn one into a stylish cushion cover:

How To Make A Glass Cloth Cushion Cover

CUSHION COVER

Tea towel White cotton Cushion pad, 35cm square

  • Cut a tea towel in half and cut off the hem from the end edge to make the piece 36cm wide. Fold in half with the right sides facing, matching the stripe in the design, and pin in place.

  • Unpick a small amount of the remaining hemmed edges and then stitch the two side seams together with a 5mm seam allowance. Neaten by overlocking or zig zagging. Re-hem the existing hem at the side seams.

  • Trim a rectangle measuring 36cm x 74cm from a piece of white cotton. Fold this in half widthways, pin the sides together and then stitch with a 5mm seam allowance.

  • Turn and press in 1cm at thetop, turn again and edge stitch the hem in place. Slip the white cover over the cushion pad, then place the tea towel cover over this.
