Joy. I have finally finished my needlepoint cushions, previously posted here and here because I made it easy for myself.
Call me lazy but when I found out that I could use ready-to-sew cushion backs, zipper included, I couldn't resist.
You could also use these cotton backs for other projects if you dislike sewing zippers. I couldn't find them in Australia so purchased them at EmbroiderStitch.Com, a UK based website that has an amazing selection of needlepoint and craft kits.
So easy. Lightly press the finished needlepoint front and square up if necessary. Pin fronts and backs right side together and don't forget to open the zipper first! Sew along your last row of stitching.
I like my cushion corners to be square so after zig-zagging and trimming the edges, mitered corners were folded and held as pictured before turning inside out through the open zipper.
See. Square corner.
Is there anything more satisfying than a finished project? That's a big deal in my household.
