  1. Die-cut each Wild Leaf from the die set on to a separate piece of stencil film to create 3 stencils.
  2. Use the stencils to sponge paint the mint fabric paint onto the white fabric to make a random pattern of Wild Leaves.
  3. Once dry, cut the patterned white fabric into an isosceles triangle (8” x 20” x 20”).
  4. Sew 1 of the longer 20” edges of the patterned triangle to the edge of the light grey fabric (right sides together).
  5. Repeat this step but, sew the opposite 20” edge to the dark grey fabric.
  6. Iron the seams flat.
  7. Cut a 16”x16” square from both the assembled fabric and plain white fabric.
  8. Now pin both of the cushion cover panels together, along three sides ensuring the patterned side of the cushion cover faces inwards and sew using a quarter inch seam.
  9. Turn the cushion cover the right way around and iron the open edge inwards with a quarter inch seam.
  10. Put in the inner cushion into the cushion pad.
  11. Hand sew closed.
