Bias tape cushion

BEAUTY OF BIAS TAPE

First of all I must say Thank You to all those who give me their
opinions, suggestions and points to make the blog more better.
"De Activate The Word Vitrifaction"
was the  most suggested opinion by the visitors...
No doubt that many time I myself  became too annoyed by this when
I am commenting on somewhere, feel like hindered ...
So I deactivate this option now...
There are few more suggestion on which 
I will work a bit later.
And one more thanks for keeping me in your prayers,
I am feeling much better now, and I hope within 
two or three days it will be 100% perfect.
Thanks a lot to all of you once again...



Cushions ... my ultimate passion and love...
In any type of stitching, I am more and more pleased
to stitch a cushion, nothing is more appealing for me...
Today my project is
Bias Tape Cushion


I made them with Maroon fabric and different colour bias tape.
Its very easy to make and looks very appealing
I think so :)...
OK, now we start the project,
I try my best to make it understandable for you that if
you want to make a one, it is easy for you ... 


Its the fabric and multi colour bias tape, my fabric is bit silken 
but with a touch of little stiffness...


Now you can see the down side of bias tape, I folded it
from the center...


After folding I stitched it like the above picture ...


Here it is my treasure of folded bias tape ...


My cushion was 15x15, so I took a piece of 16x16, 
and fold it from the center to acquire the center point.
Now I mark points for the bias tape.


I glued the bias tape on that chalked points. Its now your 
choice that you want different colour tape or in one colour.


Here are three cushions... First  I glued a bit all the tapes 
on both the ends because it makes easy to stitch them.

After gluing stitched both the ends of tape, 
like I showed in the above picture ...


Now attached the back portion and stitched your cushion
completely ...


Now its your finished product...
Doesn't it looks nice and beautiful? And you can go for your
matching colours for your rooms and I think its not 
difficult to stitch ... isn't?


Now my cushions are on their destination.
Oh yes these little Grey ones, aren't they cute?


This one is the mixture of bias tape and Grey cushion.


 So what did you say about all these ...
I am waiting for your responses  and hope you like it ...

HAPPY CUSHIONING

Hello Farah,
you are a great designer. The cushions look very modern and fashionable. Nice idea, thank you for sharing it with us.
Wish you a wonderful weekend.
Greetings, Johanna

That's a great idea! So easy to customize the cushions to match your decor. They'd also be good for adding a little subtle holiday colour to your home without it being 'just' for the holidays.
