I would like to preface this post with a request; Don’t ever allow me to attempt this again! I followed the instructions, but I am not so good at following them. If I think I can make it easier, I will. That was my first mistake. I started this project at 10:30 this morning, and didn’t finish until 5 PM!!!!! I can sew ok, it’s measuring that gets me, every single time.
I used what I had around the house, digging through my fabric stash. I knew that I wanted something neutral, something without a pattern, so I chose black with white piping. I made the piping using the instructions from Sew Mama Sew, and as crazy as it looks, it works.
I was supposed to add piping to the bottom piece too, but I said fagedaboutit after 6 hours of sewing. Other people make it look so darn easy.
I still have to paint out the storage bench in white, and that will have to do to make it look like the bottom of the cushion has piping
forgive the crappy photos, I’m too tired to haul out my other camera
