Now that things are starting to settle down after we moved into our new house and also moved Raggedy Bits into a shop all at the same time ( just a side note ….. I will NEVER do that again!!) It’s time to start making some fun items to pop into the shop. After a recent trip to IKEA I found some gorgeous farmhouse style tea towels and thought they would fit in perfectly. So today I’m sharing how to make farmhouse stamped tea towel cushions.

Welcome back to Waste Not Wednesday! For those who have been following along for a while, you’ll know Waste Not Wednesday as a linky party. But Leanna and I have decided to change things up a bit. Each Wednesday, we will be bringing you fun projects from us and some of our favourite bloggers. This week’s theme is sewing!
- Ikea Mariatheres Tea Towels – They come in a set of 2
- calico or a coordinating light colour fabric
- Iron Orchid Designs Decor Stamp – Farmhand
- Iron Orchid Designs Decor Ink – Stone Gray
- Sewing Machine
- Soft Toy filler
- Grid Thin Mount
Don’t have time to make them? We’ve got you covered! You can find them over in our SHOP
Step 1 – Fold your Ikea Tea Towels in half and press with your iron. Cut out 2 x 16″ x 8″ rectangles from the calico and press also with your iron.
Step 2 – Layout the words that you would like on your cushions using the Farmhand Stamp.
Step 4 – Fill in any words that you are missing and stamp.
Step 5 – Pin your calico pieces to one half of your tea towel and sew 1/2″ in around the rectangle.
Rinse and Repeat!
Step 6 – Repeat for the other tea towel.
Step 7 – Fold the tea towel half so the calico is on the inside. Sew down both sides and across the bottom but be sure to leave a nice gap so that you can turn your cushion in the right way.
Step 8 – Carefully pull the edges to get a frayed effect. Be careful not to go to close the stitching. Stuff with toy fill and stitch up the opening.
Now it’s time to decorate with your new Farmhouse Style cushions!
You can reverse the other cushion and have a nice contrasting cushion and swap them out for a bit of fun!
Add a wooden bead garland and cozy throw and you’re all done!
Let’s take a peek at what my dear friend Leanna has been sewing!
