Cover Image.jpg

Heya guys! We are back with another fun DIY tutorial. 

Bored with the usual designs of cushion covers? Follow the simple steps and make one with the design / pattern of your choice.

Material Required

Material Rquired

  • Plain Cushion Cover
  • Embroidery Frame
  • Hobby Idea 3D Outliner (Choose colors that match the color of the cushion cover)

Note :- Draw or trace a design of your choice on the cushion cover, using a pencil (as seen on the cover in the image above)

Method

Step 1

Place the fabric between the embroidery frame, so that it is nice and taut. This is necessary so that the fabric does not pucker, thus making it easier for you to use the 3D outliner on it.

Heya! All you DIY lovers, check out this cool tutorial on ‘Jewelry Teacup Stand’ by Jessica Rose, founder of the London Jewelry School.

Material Required 

DIY

1. 3 different size plates

2. 2 large teacups

3. 1 small teacup

4. Glue gun

5. Pencil

Method

Step 1

Take the large size plate, place one large teacup (upside down) in the center of the plate. Mark around the cup with a pencil, this will serve as a guide at the time when you will glue the cup on to the plate.

Step 1

Step 1 – Marking the guide

Repeat ‘Step 1’ using the medium size plate with the large teacup (upside down) and the small size plate with the small teacup (facing upwards).

Step 2

Now use the glue gun and go all the way round on the rim of the large teacup, as quickly as possible (the glue gun dries really fast) and stick the teacup in the center of the large plate (follow the guide that you had marked in step 1).
