How to make an easy ribbon cushion


Materials: a choice of Ribbons, a plain cushion cover, scissors, pins, needle (or a sewing machine) and thread.

This easy-to-make ribbon cushion can be designed to suit any colour scheme or season and is the perfect ‘handmade with love’ addition to relax back on. Follow our guide and you’ll have a beautiful cushion in no time.

  1. Pick out a plain cushion cover, or make a simple one of your own with cotton or linen, and select your ribbons. We recommend choosing a range of ribbons in complementary shades and mixing in a few patterns and textures to add interest. Combinations of Velvet Ribbon, Striped Ribbon, and Satin Ribbon work amazingly together, and you could add in some Fringing, or make the whole thing with fringe like we did with our pom pom cushion pictured below.
  2. Place your ribbons across the cushion cover and play with the order until you’re happy with the final design. Once that’s done, cut the ribbons to the correct length and pin them to the cushion cover.
  3. To complete, stitch down the middle of each piece of ribbon and across either end to secure the ribbons in place.
