DESIGN YOUR OWN colourful cushions

Use these instructions to create your own bespoke cushions – choose braided trim, piped edging and decorative buttons or keep it simple with two-toned fabric for an instant update to your living room or bedroom

You will need

• Simplicity pattern 1480, View A •scissors 450cm fabric for cushion front •50cm fabric for contrast sides and back •pins •sewing machine •dressmaker’s scissors •80cm braided trim (optional) •2.1m 6mm lipped piping or twisted cord (optional) 4polyester stuffing •closed-ended zip (optional) •eight small buttons (optional)

1 Begin by preparing your pattern. This project uses View A of Simplicity 1480. Unfold the pattern paper carefully and cut out all of the View A pieces, then pin them to your chosen fabrics. Cut the fabric pieces out using sharp dressmaker’s scissors. If you want to ensure you can reuse the pattern again and again, copy each pattern piece onto sheets of stiffer paper, which will last longer than the thin tissue used to make sewing patterns.

About Your Home Magazine

Is it just me, or do you love the month of May too? Not only does it feel like summer is on the way, but we also get those cheeky bank holidays to enjoy. For many of us the longer, warmer days mean that it’s the perfect time to tackle those decorating jobs we’ve been thinking about. In this issue we’ve got plenty of expert advice to help you plan your next decorating project and redesign your rooms like a stylist (p.36). If you’re thinking about updating your bathroom, then we’ve got some great monochrome schemes to inspire you (p.48), plus three readers share their own bathroom transformations with us (p.24) and they’ve got plenty of great ideas for you to steal. If, like me, you have a tiny kitchen, you’ll love our clever suggestions and smart solutions to make the most of the space you have (p.54). Now that summer is on the horizon, our thoughts turn to spending more time outdoors. On page 106 we discuss how to turn your alfresco space into an extension of your home. From balconies to terraces, patios to decks, we’ve got ideas for every space, no matter how big or small. If you’re a fan of street food, check out our delicious recipes on page 100 which will show you how to recreate all your favourite dishes at home. The Bajan fish cakes are really delish! Finally, to help you with your bank holiday projects we’ve put together a special free magazine to accompany this issue, full of quick and easy ideas to revamp your home in just a few hours. Happy decorating!
