It’s time for a Monthly Craft De-Stash, hosted by C’mon Get Crafty! The idea is to use up goodies that you already have in your craft supplies and make a project! Last month’s project was some super simple Vintage Farmhouse Bunny Napkins using up some vintage napkins and scrap material. I have been wanting to make some new cushions for our sofa. So using up some scrap drop cloth from another project I grabbed my sewing machine and got busy making a Vintage Farmhouse Drop Cloth Cushion.
Vintage Farmhouse Drop Cloth Doily Cushion
- Drop Cloth – One square cut into 15 1/2″ x 15 1/2″ Then 2 x 15 1/2″ x 12″ rectangles. I cut mine out using a quilters ruler and cutter to get nice straight edges.
- Sewing machine and contrasting thread.
- Pillow Insert
- Vintage Doily
Step 1 – One the 15 1/2″ square pin the doily in the centre.
Step 2 – Using your sewing machine sew around the centre of the doily.
then onto Step 3 – Sew around the outside of the doily.
Step 4 – On the two smaller rectangles fold 1/2″ along one of the 15 1/2″ edges. Iron then roll again 1/2″ and then press with the iron. Pin to hold into place. Repeat with the other rectangle. Then sew as close as you can to the bottom roll on both of the rectangles.
Step 5 – Lay the square with the doily facing up onto a table. Then lay the 2 smaller rectangles on top face down. Pin together. Then sew your pillow together leaving a 1/4″ seam. Then using a zig zag stitch, stitch around the seam. This will prevent the pillow from fraying. Flip inside out and iron.
Step 6 – Insert your cushion insert.
And there you have a fun Vintage Farmhouse Drop Cloth Doily Cushion to adorn your home.
