Round Floor Cushion Tutorial

Round Floor Cushion Tutorial

My new outdoor floor cushions. To make them super comfy and hardwearing I fused Vlieseline fusible batting H640 to all the panels which gives them a lovely soft smooth look and feel, and is easy to apply as you just place the interlining with the coated side on the wrong side of the fabric.

Cover with a damp cloth and press each area for about 15 seconds, without pushing the iron. Allow the pieces to cool flat for about 30 minutes, so that the adhesive can set properly and away you go.

As I plan to use the floor cushions outside I have sprayed them with Liquiproof, which uses the innovative qualities of nanotechnology to form an invisible barrier, which is water-resistant and oil-repellent. The individual fibres of the surface are bonded with silicone dioxide particles which form the protective coating, meaning my cushion surfaces are fully protected from oil and water.
