One Down, Seven to Go

I stayed pretty busy this weekend with sewing and working on the house. We did fit in some fun things too. We went to see the last Harry Potter- it was amazing and I enjoyed it a lot!

This evening I finished one cushion I made from the portable cushion tutorial on Sew, Mama, Sew. I followed the tutorial pretty closely except for I didn't put the handle on and I added ties to secure them on the chairs.

I LOVED this tutorial. It was easy to follow and turned out great. This was my first zipper I ever sewed in and the first time ever made piping. Some of the things I loved about the tutorial:

  • The technique for making the piping casing was wonderful- and will be useful for making bias tape too.
  • There were pictures for every step of the project.
  • Making my own piping- so much cuter than buying it- worth the extra time!

I only got one completely finished and you can see it below on one of our deck rocking chairs. I bought too much fabric (oops!) and so on top of the 5 cushions I planned on doing I may do some back cushions on the chairs. So this project may take a while.

Here is the other fabric I am doing on our white "set" of deck furniture. I love the colors and pattern on this one.

Happy Crafting!

I love those fabric colors! And you are right about the paper map! It would be great to map a family's travels.

I think you chose great colors for the chair. And the piping is very neatly done. I need a cushion for my $1 chair. Come see!
