 Pin second leg of zipper, sew it --> foto.




For embroidery iron on a piece of interfacing on back side of cushion. (Interfacing should be a little bit larger than embroidery).




On right side mark embroidery with pencil or use copy paper or sew around the pinned motif as I did --> foto.




Now start with embroidery. Work along the drawing or sewing line, use 3 strands of embroidery floss, work a chain stitch --.> foto.




Turn cushion to wrong side. Fold it that zipper appears about 10 cm from lower edge. Then close sides.
