Ta Da - Look what I made!

I made new cushions for my old outdoor table and chairs with the help of my mother in law last weekend. I wanted to show you all because I'm pretty proud of them :)  We made a pattern out of newspaper by cutting up the original cushions. I have had this fabric for a couple years with this in mind, but kept putting it off. I'm so glad it's done now, it looks better than I imagined.

After - Ooo la la

Have you made anything for your home lately? It's very satisfying :)

  2. Oh how beautiful- and I LOVE that fabric you used- gorgeous! We haven't made anything lately, but have plans to build a pergola out of reclaimed windows once the weather cools down a bit......

  3. You did a fantastic job on the cushions! Wish I could sit outside on my deck but lately, its been a bit too hot! ;-)

  5. these turned out great & I can see why you're proud of them... congrats on your accomplishment!

  6. OMGosh, I so need to do this to the cushions on the screened in porch! This inspires me to move a little closer to doing it rather than putting it off. As for being proud of should be, they look GREAT!!! It would appear that even Thunder approves ;)

    Have a great weekend!
