Similar but Different

Flag cushions are very much in at present . They need not be an exact replica but because of this they are fun to make . I have made them in floral fabrics , and various colours . This one is pale green brocade as the main and pieces from my stash on the stripey effect .

I cut 4 rectangles approx , 8" x 6"
add the white 2 1/2 " strips across the rectangle (turn 1/4" in on the sides )
add the blue strip 1 1/4 " on top of the white strip (turn 1/4"in on sides )

Join the 4 rectangles with a broad white strip down and across , then add a narrower strip of another colour on top of the white strip .

Finish as you do any other cushion.

The St George flag that boys and girls use for football would make a nice bedroom cushion for football fans .

Very 'in' at the moment, and yours are most attractive.
