Learn to sew the infamous box cushion! From armchair seats, comfy sofa's, window seat cushions, to cozy oversized floor pillows, box style cushions create the foundation for a comfortable living space. In this 3 session workshop you will plan, measure, cut, & assemble your custom box cushion complete with a zipper and professional piped edge finish! 
Make a  4" x 20" x 20" sample size or bring your measurements to make a  cushion cover specific to your decor (note: cushions must be square or rectangular to ensure everyone is receiving the same instruction)

We will review foam and fill options in the first two sessions
