DIY Post: No Sewing Required Pretty Cath Kidston Cushion ♥

I have a sewing machine but it’s a right hassle getting it out and setting it up, and threading the bloody bobbin every time. So if I can find a way to cheat my sewing needs then I will! I recently took a trip to Ikea and picked up a big plain white cushion with an attached cover. It was only £3, and I thought I would buy it and do myself a DIY project using some of the pretty fabrics I’ve gathered lately.
I’ve a stack of Cath Kidston fabric samples that I’ve picked up from their St Neots factory store on the cheap. So I decided to use some of them to customise my new big cushion into something more my style!
I ‘made’ the big one in the middle!

All I needed was some scissors, fabric, and some Fabri-tac glue (and of course the cushion). I simply drew out the letters to spell LOVE freehand. This was a lot of guess work and should probably have made some templates on the computer, but I’m lazy! Then I cut the letters out using some sharp fabric scissors. I stuck on the letters using the fabulous Fabri-tac glue, which is a permanant adhesive that can be used on fabrics. I also cute out some roses and strawberrys from Cath Kidston fabric swatches and stuck those on too.

And that was all I needed to do! I hope you enjoyed this simple DIY no-sew cushion tutorial!
