How to Make a Tassel Fringed Cushion

Annie Sloan shows you just how easy it is to make your own fringed cushion out of her Linen Union Fabric Collection.

  1. Snip the edge of your chosen Linen Union fabric at 50cm / 19in and tear it. Here, Annie has used Provence + Aubusson Blue.
  2. Repeat on a second piece of fabric so that you have two squares the same size with rough edges around all four sides.
  3. Place your two squares of fabric together so the right sides are facing out.
  4. Pin the fabric about 2.5cm / 1 inch down on three sides of the fabric and sew.
  5. Insert the cushion and pin along the remaining open side before sewing shut.
  6. Pull the threads around all four sides until you have nice tassel fringed edges.
