patio redo

This is an ANNUAL project.
My poor old furniture needs some covering!


I NEVER spend much on this operation...
in fact...
this year it was FREE!!!

My cushion covers NEVER last more than one year...
so I really don't like to spend much on the fabric.
This year the heavy duty fabric was given away a few months ago
and I GLADLY took it!

Both the rust and wheat colors only had enough to do
HALF the job....so I put them together.
THEN....
I added some leftovers from my last quilt.

After piecing a panel for the fronts of the cushions...
I pressed the edges in....

Centered it....and pinned.....

Zigzagged....;)

TaDah!!!
My cushions are READY for the season!

Then...
I had some leftover fabric.

and couldn't let it go to WASTE!

Kind of cute, huh?

I drew some circles with a chalk pencil....
and "stitch doodled" them in.

Hmmm...
I think I like it.

  8. Your stitches are so even. I have got to learn how to do that, or try.
