How to Make a Pressing Cushion


Pressing Cushion - This is a must for any one sewing clothing, garments, or costumes.  It is useful for pressing armhole seams and curved joints. The pressing cushion almost looks like a loaf of bread.  It is round so that you can easily press a curved area on a garment, like a sleeve.


Cut two oval pieces of fabric approximately 6" wide X 10 - 12" long, like shown in the photo.  Calico fabric works best.

Pin the 2 oval pieces of fabric pretty sides together.  Sew a 1/2 inch seam allowance around the oval pieces of fabric leaving an opening on one side for turning.  Clip curves, and turn your cushion pretty sides out.
Stuff your Pressing Cushion with sawdust or pieces of fabric. DO NOT use stuffing.  You want the pressing cushion to be very firm so that when you put your sleeve in it, it can press the curves well. Hand sew your opening closed.
Your pressing cushion is done!!! It will come to good use and you will see the difference in pressing your curved seams.


The pressing cushion can be used to shape tailored garments, pleats, gathers, and contoured areas. It works well on sleeves. It is a must for any seamstress.
