DIY Formal Shirt to Cushion Cover

My first formal shirt refashion was a shirt to blouse, this time it was a lot more simple!



I got an old shirt from my Dad, dyed it turquoise, then cut it under the arms. I placed my cushion on to the shirt, drew round it, then sewed it to size, making sure the ruffles and buttons were centred (the buttons are the cushion opening).


I then trimmed the seams and turned it the right way out and popped my cushion inside! Simple. It is a light weight cover so wouldn't be suitable for a sofa but for decoration on our spare bed it is perfect.
