Cushions

Finally got a day off and decided to tackle my cushions. Can't afford to have them done professionally. The estimates I received were outrageous and I had bought the fabric some time ago. I included a couple of pics. Hoping they don't look too "homemade". This is the first one. I'll be doing one of the big ones just to see what the combo will look like.

Wow they look great, we are about to do ours. How much material did you get and did you do the backs in vinyl?

Well done. They are looking good! I did mine last winter and know all to well how hard it is to get a good fit! LOL I see you are way smarter than I and left the piping off - that's what I should have done. Making the piping and trying to make fit adjustments after it was attached was a way to much work and a time eater!

I didn't want to deal with the piping, plus I didn't have the piping foot and wasn't willing to buy one. The fabric is not vinyl backed but the foam has plastic over them before I put them in the cases. I just wanted something that looked good and could be washed when needed.

Wow, sharp looking! If anyone thinks these look homemade, I'd suggest a trip to an opthamologist might be in order.

Thanks Donna. I had to see how they were going to look in Mandy. Working on the curtains too. Just can't find any thread to match the fabric for the curtains and can't find spools for my serger. Going to Austin Thursday to find both. Wish me luck.

christine---excellent job!! i love the fabric. and you matched up all the "squiggles" very well...it all blends seamlessly. heck, i've seen designer dresses where the prints were no where near matched up! did you do hand-sew up the last seam or use zippers?

I used the zippers from the original cushions. Unfortunately I broke one and had to order some from Ebay. My Scamp's front bunks were disassembled and there was nothing but bare cushions. I'll be making the cover for that cushion totally freehand. Hopefully, I'll have them all finished on my next day off. I'll be tackling the curtains and the rods.

Here is one set of the curtains. I have dark brown sheers to go in between them. I'm not too sure about the trim. Wanted other opinions...Trim or no trim??

I love that fabric. Top notch work! I too skipped the piping when I made my cushion covers figuring the effort for an amateur would have made me hate my life.
