To make these gorgeous cushion covers, which have a definite summer-holiday vibe, you will need a beachtowels (ones with tassels work best), cushion inserts, tape measure, pins, needle and thread and a sewing machine.

Step 1

Measure the cushion insert.

Step 2

From the beachtowel, mark out two squares about 4cm longer and wider than the insert, so there is room for seams. If the beach towel has tassels, leave them on for a fabulous effect.

Step 3

Turn the front sides of the beach towel squares together and pin them around the edges. Tack the seams with needle and thread. Remove the pins and sew up three sides on the sewing machine. With needle and thread, neatly hem the open sides. Turn the square inside out and pop in the insert. Beachy keen!
