How to Make a Cushion Cover With a Cushion Panel
(Updated 17th January 2022)
In this guide we will show you how to make a cushion cover using a cushion panel. With over 50 cushion panels to choose from, all you need to do is add a contrasting back fabric, and zip, then finish off with a cushion inner and you have your very own cushion. This project is suitable for both beginner sewers or a seasoned pro, and is a great option for a gift or the ultimate sofa accessory.
Cushion panels are a great way to inject some personality into your space with the added joy of making the cushion yourself. A cushion panel is the face of your cushion which can be sewn onto any backing fabric. For our cushion panel project, we’ve used the JF Vintage Velvet in Coral, but we have a fantastic range of fabrics suitable for the back of cushions, whether you want to opt for a plain fabric that picks out a colour in your space or a patterned fabric to make a statement.
