Thank you all for your lovely comments! Sewingcanary, it sounds like you have washed many a dry clean fabric. You are right about remembering to take it out after just a few minutes. That's the hard part!

Lovely! The lapped zipper insertion was a good idea. I have fabric sitting on the shelf that has been waiting two years to be made into cushions!

Really nice! - hidden invisible zips and a whole tutorial too! They'd look good on my dark chocolate brown sofa. Shall I pick them up on the weekend? Ha! More than likely you'd be fine washing them. Often manufacturers say dry clean as a way of saying they won't guarantee results if you wash something. I've washed lots of stuff labeled dry clean only. What shrinks fabric is radical temperature change (cold to hot or hot to cold) and/or agitation. One of my favorite tricks is to throw things into an unheated dryer and dry at low to medium temperature just until the fabric gets warm. It removes the wrinkles. The "trick" part is remembering to take it out as soon as it gets warm. If it's stable enough to tolerate a good hard shake I do that, then lay flat, shaping it before allowing it to dry. I try to turn it over a couple times before it's thoroughly dried. That way it's nice and smooth and often completely wrinkle free. I do it with lots of things. - - Lovely new cushions for the New Year!
