Sewing a Cushion Cover✄

Next Available: Sun, 22 Apr 10:00AM
3.0 hours


Here's a crazy idea! Let's makeover one of your rooms this weekend. With a set of new cushions casually thrown around the room it is going to look like a whole new space.

Pattern Design: Pop on into this class to create a cushion cover... with pom pom trim!!! You'll make a cushion to fit a 45cm/18" insert.

Photographed Sample: Our sample cushions include 2 metres of pink pom pom trim that has been inserted into the seams of one cushion and 1 metre of each a pink and green pom pom trim has been topstitched diagonally across the corners of the second sample cushion.

Notes on supplies: Ensure you select a closed end invisible zip (not the very similar light weight open ended zip). If you want a choice of stunning trims in almost anything you can dream up, head to Jimmy Buttons on George Street in Fitzroy. Ensure that your trim has a nice sized tape edge (at least 1cm) - it is very difficult to insert trims with a smaller tape edge).

Vendor sincce 2013

Have you played with the idea of learning to sew? Do you day dream about making your own clothes? 

At Thread Den it's just like a friend (a super nice clever one) teaching you and a few friends to sew. There is no need to clear off a space and find somewhere to work at home. When you come in; take advantage of having all the equipment on hand, lovely big cutting tables, smooth running Janomes with plenty of feet accessories, inspiring resources, and friendly people to chat to. Everything is right here. Students simply need to bring along their fabric, matching thread and notions like buttons, zips, etc.  Your teachers have years of experience, their own labels and businesses, and the desire to share their skills and craftsmanship with you.

Thread Den is located at Level 1, 329 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Start at the very beginning, take your skills to the next level, or find your own unique style.

In instances where Thread Den must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled class and will receive a credit for a replacement class or a refund as required.

There are no refunds due to change of mind.

This class was fantastic. I loved learning about the materials used and why to use it over others, using an overlocker and sewing machine, not to mention inserting a pesky invisible zip. I now have a great cushion that I love and made. Jen was fantastic such a great teacher and so helpfull. Some people even finished early so time/ length of the class is perfect.
