Another eyedea, Make a cushion cover similar to a fitted sheet, make several and then when they get dirty they are easy to remove and wash and replace. You could even put elastic straps on the underside to ensure they wouldn't come off while using them. I think I will do the same as I have two dogs and muddy foot prints are always a hugh bother.

Linda, that is exactly what I plan to do. Easy on, easy off. No need to decorate the bottoms of the cushions.

They will slip right over the current ones.

I think I have it. I have an old tartan plaid (The official color of Oregonian blood) sofa cover. It is in very good condition. The dog hair never stuck to it either.

Don't know what it's made of.

For some perverse reason, I re-read all these comments with the thought you were referring not to cushions for "The Shady Bush II" but to one's physically attached "cushions". Virtually all comments still apply.

OK here's my 2 cents worth. I just recovered our cushions, I got new foam too. I used upholstery fabric which is NOT washable, but I sprayed the whole lot with Scotsguard, so it should be "wipeable" however, I think maybe not cat-hair-proof. I would NOT use corduroy, it fades dramatically (I speak from experience here) The other part of the consideration is, it's quite a bit of work and I wanted ours to last and not have to do them every year. I'm really pleased with the results!

We got all new cushions from Scamp [our originals were vinyl on one side, too], but we also wanted to protect the new cushions from our dogs. We're very happy with the denim covers I made.

My sewing ability is limited so I made them like big pillow cases. I think the material was 60" wide. Rather than cutting off the extra width for a closer fit, I kept the extra width and tuck it in at the ends of each cushion, and the covers hold in place very well. Pre-shrinking the fabric is important. I also made the covers a few inches bigger than the actual cushions so they go on and off easily.

Good luck with your project.
