A Plain Cushion
zipped in a plain or patterned fabric
Step 4: Attach the Fabric Panels on the Zip Line

JOIN THE PANELS ON THE ZIP EDGE

  • Align the 2 fabric panels face sides together and pin.
  • On one side, draw a line across the fabric 2cm up from the bottom edge and parallel to it.
  • Make a mark on the line 5cm in from each side.
  • With a single knotted thread, sew a line of tacking stitches all the way along the "2cm line".
  • Machine along the 2cm tack line in from each side of the fabric panel to the 5cm mark.
  • Reinforce the stitch at the 5cm marks.
  • Note the tacking stitch between the 5cm marks is where the zip will be (the zip opening).
  • Remove pins.
  • Open out and lay the joined panels right side down.
  • Press open the seam.
