Download this free sewing tutorial and create a cushion panel with a feature fabric insert, surrounded by overlapping panels in a partner fabric. Decorative stitching surrounds the feature fabric. Use a bold fabric in a large print for the central insert, and a smaller print in the surrounding panels.
This project was developed to make use of scrap pieces of feature fabric - in particular, the 20cm test squares of Spoonflower fabric. The measurements in this tutorial gives you a 30cm cushion panel, but it could easily be adapted to make a larger panel. This tutorial covers how to sew the front panel only. If you need to learn how to put in a zip, I have recommended a zip tutorial below.
The red hen fabric, and a brown hen version can be bought as either fabric or wallpapers at my Spoonflower shop. Click on the link below.
