Lately I have been trying to come up with a good idea for a birthday present for a nerd. I came up with the following idea:

Since I still have no sewing machine, I decided to buy plain white cushion covers, and just pimp them with the letters. If I had a sewing machine however, I would have made these from scratch!

I started of with drawing all the letters that I needed on a piece of paper. I cut them out with my scissors. 

I then transferred them on a piece of black felt with a piece of chalk. I used felt because it doesn't fray. I cut these letters as well. You can always do this in a more professional way, but this was what I had available.

Next, I used pins to place the letters in their right position on the cushion cover.

Finally, stitch all the letters on the covers. I did this by hand, since I have no sewing machine. You probably can do this with the sewing machine though. Be careful that you keep the cover straight when stitching this by hand! 

And that's that! You have personalized cushion covers, ready to give away, or to decorate your own home!

Of course you can also stitch other pieces of felt on the cushion covers. For example try making a personalized cover with a name or pimp a dull cushion with flowers. I'm sure you all can come up with even better ideas! I look forward to seeing what creativeness you can come up with!

With love,

  1. just a quick tip if you use OK to Wash from Alleen's Glue you can just glue the letters in place :) happy crafting!
