So, do you need some help on how to design your handmade cushions

Before designing your handmade cushions, you need to first know and familiarize how to make it:

Step 1: measure the mat or check the size of your cushion. Use a ruler to mark the area of the fabric with a triangle and a high-grade chalk pencil. Mark once the front of the cushion and then on the back. Put the pattern in the middle if there is one. Cut it into pieces and iron. 

Step 2: fix the front and back of the cushion to the right, leaving space on one side of the cushion. Fix the end of the thread and reverse the stitches of the sewing machine to a position close to the crease. 

Step 3: use corner clips to remove heavier fabrics (such as velvet). Or, to form a sharp, slightly pad corner on a lightweight fabric. Fold the double seam creases on both sides. Press along the stitch line and press down. 

Step 4: turn over the handmade cushion cover, and then press the cushion to insert it. Use a needle and a few threads to push the sewing hole open to close it. 

Now, to make your handmade cushions more customized and characterized as your own, here are the 4 tips we can provide to you on how to decorate and design your cushions covers:

  1. Tones of your cushions covers


The cushions help to exude the interior style and create an organized appearance. This is also a way to add color to the space. Especially when it comes to large pieces of furniture, the neutral sofa occupies the entire room. 

You can decide the color of your handmade cushions based on the shape you want to create and based on the other items in the living room. To decorate a formal space, it is best to choose matching colors or more calm colors. You can make the palette more enjoyable in your casual and comfortable home. 

  1. Patterns


If you like patterns, don’t be afraid to mix them together instead of having 2 or 3 identical things. Just make sure to clean up the colors and textures. 

Modern cushion methods allow you to mix patterns and prints to add personality to the space, but be careful because they may exaggerate. Choose patterns for your handmade cushions that complement the overall palette of your room. In order to keep the shade of the handmade cushion, some ordinary cushions are mixed together to provide a sense of stability.
