    1. Cut a rectangle of base fabric, 30cm x 74cm. Fold each 30cm end over by 1cm and then over again by another 1cm, to catch the raw edge inside the fold, and then sew along each end.

    2. Trim a different fabric to a 26cm square and another print to a 24cm square. Press each edge over by 1cm to the back.

    3. Pin and sew the larger square of fabric centrally to the base fabric and then repeat with the smaller fabric square. With wrong sides facing, fold each hemmed edge towards the middle, overlapping them by 10cm. Sew up each edge with a 1cm seam allowance.

    4. Turn the cushion cover through the fold, straighten and press.
