Honey bun Soiree`
6 inch square backing fabric
Polyfil or Walnut shells
5.5 inch OmniGrid ruler
Choose 5 fabric strips and cut cross-wise 1.5 X 6.5 inches
Sew your strips together in a please arrangement using the picture as your guide. Next take your backing fabric and lay the 5.5 inch square ruler on it as shown…this is the guide I used to mark my corners.
Draw a pencil line on the wrong side of the fabric.
Layer the pieces right sides together and pin.Sew a 1/4 inch seam allowance around sides and pencil corners. I use a 1/4 inch foot and line up my pressure foot with the pencil line. Make sure you leave a 1.5 inch opening for turning. I back stitch with my machine at the beginning and end for strength.
Stuff with polyfil or lizard litter.
Whip stitch opening closed with silk thread. Using upholstery thread, I usually knot where a button or yo-yo will be.
And pinching the fabric together…I take several ‘bites’ through the center of the cushion. I knot again once I have a pleasing arrangement.
Sew on a button or yo-yo and you’re done.
