  • Pyramid cushions

    A PDF file for your information: there may be other instruction on how to achieve the making up of a pyramid cushion, so feel free to add your too! Iused the diagram and added a 1.5cm seam allowance along the outer edges of each section, matching up the crossing points at the top and bottom of each piece when joining. The bottom base square I added a zip with a flap to protect floors and surfaces.

    Re: Pyramid cushions

    I saw a question somewhere from someone asking how to make pyramid cushions (or humbug cushions as I call them), and wanted to help. they really are the simplest thing in the world. For the inserts, do you know what I do?? I buy an ordinary square cushion insert, then carefully cut one edge open, then resew it, instead of 'side to side' sew it 'front to back' (this really is difficult to explain). The best way to think about it is go and play with a PG tip tea bag. The Pyramid really is a square, with the bottom seam sewn side to side, and the top seam front to back. if you get my meaning, lol.

        If you check out this blog http://allittook.blogspot.com/2008/0...-tutorial.html there are instructions for a 'true' pyramid doorstop with a square as the base and triangular sides. It could be adapted to make a cushion instead.

              Incidentally. If you make the infils like I described above, the covers for them can be made in one length of fabric (unlike the video which would have a seam on every straight edge. I.e. if using an 18" cushion, you would simply use fabric 18" x 36" (twice the width) plus seam allowances all round. insert a zip on the short edge-to-edge, then using the same method as before, sew top and bottom - one of the seams 'side to side' and the other 'front to back'. You will then have your pyramid cushion, covered, and without any unnecessary unsightly seams.

                    Hi Sharon - i don't have the PDF, but if I remember correctly, I found those instructions quite difficult to follow. mine are much easier
