Step 1

Print out the template onto A3 paper.

Template drawn onto fabric

Step 2

Using a window or a lightbox, trace template onto fabric using washable pen or pencil. This will  be the back of the fabric.

Step 3

Place your fabric onto an embroidery frame and make sure the fabric is as secure and stretched as possible. 

Thread your punch needle and begin by working the outside edge of the first section. Keep your stitches as even as possible, making them approx. 5mm long.

Once the outline has been worked, continue to fill in the rest of the section. 

You will be working with the wrong side of the work facing you.

Continue to fill in each section until the cushion is complete.

Step 4

Using the egg template as a guide, cut the linen backing out leaving a 3cm seam allowance.

Step 5

With RS facing in, sew around the edge of the work, leaving a gap at the bottom for the stuffing. Clip into the seam allowance to allow for a nice neat curve around the edge of the cushion.

Step 6

Turn work so the right side is facing out and fill with stuffing. Fold seam allowance in and sew the final section by hand to close.
