  • help with pom poms !

    I have been asked to make some cushions with double pom pom trim...very fancy ! I dont have a problem with this until I get to the opening which I am really having problems with. The seams are quite bulky as there are 2 layers of pom poms but no real definite edge to attach a zip to as you would with a piped seam. I am wondering if it would be best to fill the cushion and hand stitch closed, after all who is ever going to want to wash a pom pom trimmed velvet cushion??
    If anyone has any other suggestions i would be very grateful.

    I am a great exponent of sewing cushions in, as you say, who will wash them! Also it means you can throw them anywhere and not have to wory about the zip!

      I would hand stitch closed with this sort of trim.
      Kind regards
