What I'm up to this week...

Project cushions - fabric
Making this beachy fabric...
Project cushions - mega roll of fabric
(make that) a giant roll of beachy fabric...
Project cushions - the pile
and this giant pile of foam
Project cushions - at the top
into new cushions for my sister in law. These are the ones I really want to start and finish this past weekend, but I ended up getting sick instead. :( I finished one cushion during nap time yesterday and hopefully the next 15 go a lot faster!
Now you know what I'll be doing in my free time this week. Are you sewing up anything fun this week?
I hope to show you some progress with them in the next couple of days!

If you have extra time, fabric & foam, I could use some cushions and since you're already in the groove... :) Good luck with that. There's a reason I keep putting outdoor cushions off!

Would you mind sharing the pattern or tutorial that you used? I need to make some of these as well and I'm having a hard time finding a tutorial for ones made this well.

Domina said...

Wow, that is a HUGE pile of cushions to cover!! I hope you get into a good assembly-line type of groove. And zippers on each one...you should get a gold star!

What is the Name and Maker of that GORGEOUS Beachy fabric. ....It has all my favorite colors and shapes.

I have a similar fabric by Michael Miller, and am making a whole cloth quilt out of it for my niece.

Thanks, everyone! I almost have 1/2 of the cushions made.

Kate: The fabric is from Robert Allen home. There's a name of Susan Sargent on the selvage, but no other numbers to help identify it. It's an indoor/outdoor fabric and it was purchased off ebay quite a long time ago by my sister in law.
