    Want to learn how to transfer your favourite family snaps onto a plain cushion? Follow these three simple steps for personalising your sofa or bedroom, as shown by Style at Home

    You will need:

    Measuring tape & pins

    Fabric scissors & iron

    White cotton fabric

    Black & white photograph

    A4 transfer paper

    Sewing machine

    Cushion pad (30cm x 40cm), £5, John Lewis

    Step one

    Measure and cut one 30cm x 40cm, and two 25cm x 40cm pieces of white fabric. Set the two smaller pieces aside. Print the photo onto a sheet of transfer paper (if the image has any text in it, flip it before printing).

    Step two

    Cut around the edge of the printed photo and place face down onto the 30cm x 40cm piece of fabric. Iron on a hot setting and allow to cool. Peel off the backing paper.

    Step three

    Hem along one 40cm side of each of the smaller pieces of fabric. Lay them on top of the printed fabric, with hemmed sides overlapping, right sides together, and pin in place. Sew all the way around. Turn the cushion cover out and pop the cushion pad inside.
