Cushion cover:

Sew on one or more elks on the cushion cover fabric. Then fold the fabric so that the elks will be on the front side. On the back side insert the zipper. Make a french seam around the edges of the cushion cover. Turn it and iron it well.

Sew on one or more elks on the bolster cover fabric - at least 22 cm away from the right edge. Then fold the fabric and make a french seam. Turn the bolster cover and iron it well. Now make a 2 cm seam on left and right side of the bolster.
About 10 cm away of the edges fix a 70 cm ribbon to make a bow.
