Materials we’re going to need to make a cloud cushion to decorate
First of all, we need to know all the materials and tools we are going to need to manufacture our cloud cushion. Don’t worry because these are materials that are very easy to get. In many cases you even have them at home. Let’s see what we need.
- White fabric. The amount will depend on the size of the cushion
- Pattern paper
- Pen or pencil
- Color Felt
- Cushion padding
- Sewing machine
Steps we have to follow to elaborate it:
Once we have all the materials ready, it will be time to get down to work. The first of all will be draw the shape we want our cloud cushion to have. To do this, we will take the pattern paper and draw on it the chosen shape. If we want, we can go to the network in search of some model already designed. Once we have it drawn, with the help of the scissors we will cut it out.
The next step will be to pass the pattern to the fabric. To do this, take the fabric and fold it in half, to remove the two parts we need from our cushion. Then we will hold the fabric and the pattern with the help of pins.. Once well held, with the help of a pen or pencil, we will draw the outline of the cloud. Once finished, we will cut the fabric with the help of scissors. As a recommendation, use scissors that cut well so that the cut is perfect.
Once we have the two pieces cut, it would be our turn to customize the cloud. To do this we can draw eyes, mouth and nose on one of the faces or on both. This is just an example because We can design it any way we want.. However, it is important that these decorative elements are also made of fabric so that they can be sewn without problems.
The next step is to square the two pieces of fabric to sew them together. Before that, it is advisable to baste it to ensure that it does not move when sewn. In this way the work will be much simpler. It is advisable to make a machine stitching so that everything is better joined together. In this process we must not forget to leave one side without sewing so that we can put the cushion filling through it. Once we’re done with the sewing, we’ll have to remove the threads so that they cannot be seen.
Once all this part is finished, the next step will be to iron the seams and turn over the cloth sack in the shape of a cloud that we have made. We will fill it in to shape the cushion, taking care not to form wrinkles. Do not abuse the filling, because if we introduce too much the cushion could be very hard and being uncomfortable, and having trouble closing it down completely.
Finally, it will only be left to sew the hole through which we have introduced the filling. Once this is over, we have the cloud cushion done!
In the case of wanting to make an improvement, we can always try to place a zipper in the hole where we put the filling. In this way, removing the padding to wash the cushion will be much easier.
Here we have explained how to create a cloud cushion, but the process would be the same if we wanted to design another cushion with a different shape. In our imagination is the limit.
