This simple DIY floor cushion makes for comfortable seating for the living room, bedroom, or playroom. The optional zipper opening makes it easy to switch out the pillow form if it starts to get flat.
Measure and cut a 31 by 31 inch square on the wrong side of each decor fabric.
I’m making the casing 1 inch smaller than the pillow form so it makes the pillow look a little more full.
Line up each decor fabric on to a piece of ticking.
Fold one edge of both fabrics over a 1/2 inch and iron. Do this for both sets of fabric.
Line up the zipper between the folded sides of each fabric. Make sure it’s positioned evenly in the middle.
Unzip the zipper and pin along the side.
Make sure to use a zipper foot when sewing this part.
Starting at the top of the fabric, stitch along the zipper with a 1/8 inch seam allowance to the end of the fabric.
Back stitch at the beginning and the end.
Fold the pieces in half so that the right sides are facing each other.
Starting at the bottom of the zipper, pin the edges together all the way around to the top of the zipper.
Make sure the zipper is open so you can fold it to the right side afterwards.
Stitch with a 1/2 inch seam allowance.
Then, sew at the edge of the seam along the sides and bottom with a zig-zag stitch. This gives the edge a nice finish and prevents the fabric from fraying.
Clip the corners and trim off any loose threads.
Fold the case to the right side and poke out the corners.
