Sewing our Eiffel Tower embroidery cushion kits

You will find here all the explanations for sewing our cushions embroidered with an Eiffel Tower.
We highly recommend you watch our video which will show you lots of tips for an impeccable result –
markers for the stitch lines, making perfect angles, stuffing the cushion etc…

What you need

  • We recommend using a FriXion pen for markings, as they have the advantage of reacting to heat so the lines will disappear with the heat of an iron. 
  • If you have a cutting board, this is ideal.
  • You will need some pins, preferably with a glass tip. They are more visible and will not melt if you iron them.
  • And, of course, a good pair of scissors for cutting the the fabrics.
  • Stuffing for the cushion. For a more refined result, we recommend making a slightly smaller cushion in white cotton.

Cutting the embroidery and fabrics

Unless the embroidery has got dirty, it is advisable not to wash it before making the cushion.
  • Iron the embroidery on the wrong side and cut the excess linen around the motif to obtain a rectangle measuring 12 x 22cm.
    The video will show you a method to simply achieve this using tracing paper, so you cannot go wrong.
  • Cut three pieces from the Sajou fabric: two measuring 12 x 22cm and another measuring 32 x 22cm for the back.
  • Iron them.

Assembling the front of the cushion

When assembling the cushion, pay attention to the motif direction!
  • Assemble the two small rectangles with the embroidered linen, right sides together.
  • Tack and stitch at 1cm from the edge.
  • Press open the seams with an iron.

Assembling the front and the back of the cushion

  • Stitch the “Créé par moi„ label on the backing fabric on the bottom right.
  • Place front and back right sides together, tack and stitch at 1cm from the edge, leaving an opening of roughly 5cm, preferably at the bottom.
  • Pink the corners and press open seams with an iron.

Stuffing and finishing the cushion

For a more refined result, we recommend making an inner cushion from white cotton fabric with dimensions slightly smaller than the outer cushion. Turn right side out, stuff with filling and close with a few small invisible stitches.
It’s finished! All you have to do is pop on you couch and Vive La France!
Top tip from our professional seamstress : make a small cushion from white or light fabric measuring 1cm less than the cushion, 29 x 19cm, and stuff this. The result of your cushion will be much more professional.
