1. Iron your felt to remove all creases and cut out two 50cm by 50cm squares, pinning the squares together so the ‘good’ side faces outwards.

2. Using your large needle and wool, begin stitching around the cushion using the stitch illustrated below (essentially you need to stitch to the left and always pick up the last stitch to carry a border line around the cushion).
