I bought around 70 cm of fabric and the Ikea cushion pad is approximately 11' x 11', the material was just right for this size of cushion.
I laid out the fabric, placed the cushion pad on top and then folded over half of the material onto the cushion.
Then did the same on the other side.
For each end, I folded the fabric into a triangle shape to form a point. You fold in one corner then fold the other side on top.You do this to both ends so your pillow should look like this. Then doing a simple knot you tie each end into the centre. Repeat again to secure the knot. If you have enough fabric you can tie the ends underneath the sides. I was quite happy with how this turned out. Very simple and stylish. Shelley x
