A few months ago I took Brett Bara's tutorial on making zippered throw cushions and sort of went crazy. In my spare time I made cushion covers for the sofa, armchairs and every bed in the house. Out of free space, I decided that the kitchen chairs needed cushions. Thankfully a friend happened to mention that she'd like some covers, too, and I needed a gift for another, so that kept me going for a little while longer. I've just bought some raspberry velveteen to make another (but it's on hold until I can work out where to put it.) In lieu of actually making more covers (I really need to learn how to make something else...) I decided to take some pictures (something I should have done weeks ago before they were squashed and crinkly...) and share them with you, along with a few of the lovely fabrics and sellers that I found.
Susan from Living With Punks. The Pink Hexagons fabric is by Prints Charming, which I bought from Laura at Mira & Westie (the reverse is their Watermelon and Pink Dots).
C'est La Viv and backed it with black-and-white stripe vintage cotton. The gorgeous soft velveteen is Loulouthi by Anna Maria Horner.
Brett's instructions again and even added piping!
