Tea Towel Cushion


This lovely Annabel Trends tea towel has been sitting in amongst my craft projects for a while and I have been wondering about how best to display it.

I had a leftover cushion insert floating around…… so I decided to combine the two! It all happened by accident really. Quite amazingly, the cushion insert fitted absolutely perfectly into the tea towel. Meant to be!  
This project was very easy. I placed the cushion on the tea towel’s wrong side, wrapped the tea towel around the cushion to make the cover and then pinned it.

Then I simply sewed up the sides. I just hand sewed it quickly - no turning out to the right side or anything… it’s all already done!

And then I gave it its pride of place on one of the beds in our cottage. Much better than using the tea towel in the kitchen!

I’ve also previously used tea towels to make pictures and you can see them here.

Happy sewing!



  1. Wow. What a great idea! Such a low maintenance project - and you can't beat a babushka. (do you have Kate Bush singing in your head now?)

    1. Hello Shontelle! That's very funny! I'm pleased to say that I don't have it stuck in my head though!
