Make a ruffle scatter cushion in a day 

A one day sewing skills masterclass - for all levels


Ruffles are EVERYWHERE in interiors right now and most especially on scatter cushions. Velvet, stripes, block prints… whatever your fabric taste your hand made cushions should be sporting a ruffle.


We’ve developed a lovely one day workshop teaching you how to get this look. You will spend a day making a scatter cushion with zip, finished with a beautiful ruffle edge trim. The one-day workshop is suitable for novice* sew-ers. You don’t have to be an expert, but a bit of experience will help.


This is what the day will involve:

•  We'll start with measuring and cutting out your fabric accurately.
•  Ruffle time! Easy ways to make a perfectly arranged ruffled frill using your sewing machine.
•  You'll then learn how how to pin and sew your cushion, setting in the ruffle frill beautifully and finishing with a smart lapped zip.
• You’ll take home your own frilly cushion armed with all the skills to sew like a pro.

Fee: £115, inclusive of feather filled pads, zips and sundries
