This time I've made simple, fast cushion covers to brighten up our home.
Lou Lou Thi fabric. I love the colours in this fabric and they are so bright and summery. I backed them in another fabric from this range and the trick to making them a super fast sew is making them envelop closures. No zippers or buttons, just a doubled-over back to enclose the cushion insert.
Heirloom fabric line. These are nice, but not awesome like the Anna Maria Horner covers. I really thought they needed to be pieced, but I like my cushion covers serged so they can be washed easily. So I cut the fabric into different width strips, serged them together and then made the big strips into covers, again with envelop closures. I hate zippers and buttons at the best of times and have no intention of using them unless absolutely necessary.
Now I did have a length of fabric strips made up that wasn't quite long enough for a cushion cover. What was I to do with it???
"Those cushions are wearing the same outfit at me!"
Clearly Adele wasn't in the mood for taking photos yesterday.
Now that Adele has all of these new dresses and skirts, I really must start making some bloomers to cover those horrible nappies.
