For the inner cushion, cut 2 pieces of bleached cotton of 50cm[19,7″]x 30cm[11,8″] + 1cm[0.4”] for the seam. Put the right sides together with pins. Sew 3 sides, but keep 1 side open. Turn the fabric and fill the cushion. Close the seam and sew by hand.

Then put the right sides of your crochet piece together with pins. Join both pieces by closing 3 sides with a back-stitch, sewing along the edge with the Malabrigo yarn. Put in the inner cushion. Close last seam with small overcast stitches. Fasten off, weave in loose ends.
