Chas Jacob inspired cushion 

In textiles we had to make a cushion cover inspired by our choice from a selection of artists, and I chose Chas Jacobs (a local artist.) I made my cover a bit oddly shaped so I then had the challenge of making a cushion for it. 


For then cushion you will need 

  • Fabric
  • Scissors
  • Chalk
  • Pins
  • Ruler
  • Thread
  • Sowing Machine 



  • Thread the machine and other equipment.  


  • Fold the material in half and put one edge of your cover at the fold then mark out 1cm away from your cover.

  •   Cut out the shape you have drawn and pin 2 sides together.

  • Sow together the 2 sides you have pinned. 

  • Stuff and then sow the top.


    Put your newly made cushion inside your cover and display and enjoy your handy work.
