Before you begin, we recommend that you wash and dry any new cushion covers so that the ink is absorbed better. If you’d like to use a template, it’s best to make it out of cardboard.
Slide the template into the cushion. This way you can easily trace the pattern while ensuring the ink won’t transfer to the back of the cushion. Trace and colour in your design with a textile pen or marker. If you want, you can also create your design free-hand. To fix your design, iron it using the no-steam setting. Your designer cushions will now withstand washes of up to 60°C!
