So any who.... a few weeks ago Gary and I went to the fabric store looking for outdoor fabric and found this very colorful and bright material with sailboats. The sails were so pretty and stripey and full of whimsy. It had all the colors we love, then we eyed a pretty red and white polka-dot fabric and thought why not use both to brake up some of the sailboat pattern.
I had never made cushions covers with zippers before and I was a bit scared, since its been years since I'd sewn a zipper and I didn't have a pattern. I was going to have to wing it so with my heart beating fast and measuring about a million times before I cut, I sat down with my trusty sewing machine and had at it.
Oh darn there's that upside down cushion again.
I made the two side pillows a while ago and
used the left over red and white polka-dot fabric to make a quick cover for the pillow I was using for the seat.
polka dot material.
I made the covers a little bit looser, for wear and shrinkage while washing
were purchased at Lowe's. We get a lot of sun in this patio so the curtains do there job helping to keep the room cool and the hot sun off the fabric. Even though I used outdoor fabric I still worry about fading so keeping the sun off is important to me.
The chase received a new pillow cover too.
