Woven panel cushion tutorial.

April 02, 2011

I had fun making these today and made pictures to show you how I made them.
This is one way to use left over bits of ribbons and lace.

The pillow is 40 x 40 cm. so I cut out from sturdy cotton material a 42 cm square (2 cm. for the seam) and drew a 30 cm. square inside it to  guide where the panel should be.

Then I cut 32 cm. strips of lace, ribbons and trims.
Fixed in place with pins.

 Stitched the trims on both sides in place, on the drawn line and trimed the excess.

 With satin and velvet ribbons I wove across and fixed again with pins.
The first one I measured to be in the middle to keep a straight line.

 I kept weaving in and out to get the result I like,
used different sizes and textures to make it interesting.

My poor little sugar pot broke an ear after I dropped it.

I enjoyed making the first cushion so much that I made an other one in cream and pink.

 See who came and helped me... Mimi the cat that hides most of the day because he's so scared of the cat that shadows me, Fatty bon bon...

This pink woven one looks so sweet.

Here I stitched a frame around the panel, gathered some more lace in the corners and ironed it flat.

 Now to hide the joint, I gathered some narrow size lace on top of the first lace.
If in the unlikely event you don't like too much lace...  you could hide the edge of the frame with a small ending, like a small trim.

Then I fixed two halfs of about 30 cm, overlapping each other and stitch around.
Turned inside out and ironed the seams flat.
