I made "shabby chic" covers for the Scamp dinette area by just putting elastic around material cut large enough to wrap around the top and sides of the cushions. The bottom still shows the original cushion cover in the center. It seemed like it took a lot of fabric (which I found at a Goodwill Store). There were three cushions to cover: two large and one small per side. But it is really easy to pull them off and throw in the washer. They don't have a snug fit, but at least you can set on the cushions now with shorts on

You could also use a contrasting or matching fabric for the sides or bottom, if you wanted a more fitted look with a zipper closing.

Christi, I go right by the place on Wednesday evening when I take my daughter to dance class. I can pop in and ask if I can take some pictures and get price-per-yard for you. The picture you've posted of the fabric is nice, but do you really want fabric that shows snow on the ground!?!?!

Let me know, it's not a bother...I'll use any excuse to shop

Christi, am I seeing that right? Pink Flamingos and campers on your fabric? Oh my gosh .... how cute! Absolutely adorable. Please post pics of the finished products, okay? You really need that flamingo screen door, a picture of which is posted on another thread on this site!
