    There are some instructions here http://simplyfurnishings.com/homepag...pstitch_8a.htm for what I think you want - a cushion with a wide border/flange?

      Yes that is what i mean, with a flange. I am having problems with that website at the moment will have to try again later.
      im just not sure what width the flange should be, i know how to make it.
      Thanks

          ok so maybe i will split the difference and go with 3" then, its strange i was educated using the metric system but still prefer inches when it comes to curtains ect...
          thanks Louise

            No problem - it's a useful book that I got for next to nothing via Amazon marketplace - lots of interesting ideas and clear instructions. American so all in inches!

            Details here http://www.my.decozo.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=216 in the Books section.
