Back of cushion

Place your cushion cover around your cushion pad with the heart central to the front of the cushion. Keep the right side against the cushion pad and the wrong side facing.  

The looped edge needs to be against the cushion pad and the non looped edge overlaps that by a few inches. Pin the sides together and sew using one strand of MC, whip stitching over the edges. Or if you prefer, crochet the edges together using dc. Make sure youve caught all the layers as you do this. 

Turn your beautiful Be Kind Cushion Cover the right way out. 

Decide where you want to sew your buttons. Sew buttons on and that dah! Youre done!
