Step-by-step instructions to sew a cushion cover without a zipper

Sewing these cushion covers is really easy because the back of the cushion features an envelope closure, so there is no need to use a zipper.

👉 Take note of the materials you need:

  • Canvas fabric for the cushion cover
  • Cushion stuffing
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Iron
  • Thread
  • Sewing machine

Cut the cover piece

  1. To make the cushion cover, you need to cut double the size of the cushion stuffing + 16 cm. Leave a seam allowance on both sides for the side seams.
  2. Make a 1-cm double hem at both ends of the fabric. Use the iron to make it easier to sew.
  3. Place the right sides of the fabric facing each other so they overlap 14 cm.
  4. Pin the sides and sew them. Backstitch to stop it from unraveling.
  5. You are ready to turn your cover inside out, so the right side is on the outside.
  6. Stuff the cushion. Your cushion cover is ready to enjoy!
