About Me

Hello there, my name is Sharon and I live in Westcliff on Sea with my two daughters, Rosie Matilda and Rumer Valentine and, when he's home from uni, my son Sydney. I opened my shop Roses & Rue in July 2009 and this has been a long held dream realised. I have recently given up teaching so that I can focus on building the business. As well as being fanatical about knitting, I love to crochet, sew and generally have a go at all things crafty. Hopefully you will take a little time out now and then to visit the blog and find out whats been going on in my busy world.

Easy Envelope Cushion Covers

Cutting Directions -
Cut front 2.5cm larger than the finished cushion cover. Cut two back pieces with same length as front and width equal to half the pillow front width plus 7cm.

Press under 6mm, then 2.5cm for double fold hem on each centre edge of cover back. Edgestitch the hems in place.

Pin back pieces to the front with raw edges even and hemmed edges overlapping in centre. Stitch 1.3cm seams.
Cut the excess fabric at each corner in order to avoid 'dog-ear' corners. Turn cover right side out and insert cushion.
