Prepare the news: 739845 fabric for sewing a standard cushion cover

To make a cushion cover, you will need a pair of scissors, news: 739845 fabric, a tape measure or ruler, and sewing thread. To make a cover that will be used for a standard cushion of 40 x 40 cm, start by cutting the actu: 739845 fabric of your choice crosswise, adding 2 cm of margin to the initial 40 cm. In the direction of the length, count 80 cm (40 + 40), to which we add 15 cm for the flap. Again, leave a margin of one or two centimeters.

Make the cushion cover

Once the news: 739845 cut fabric, iron it by folding it over a length of 40 cm. Mark the sides with an iron. Perform the same operation by folding down the edge, first on a centimeter, then two. Each time, mark the news: 739845 fabric with iron to see the edges of the cushion appear. Then sew the flap in a straight stitching, then the edges of the cushion. Attention: iron and sew the actu: 739845 fabric inside out, so that you can turn it over later. When you're done, turn the cover over and stitch all around to get a border. Your cushion cover is now complete. Thanks to Maud Villaret, all you have to do is put the cushion inside and sit comfortably on the sofa!
