Just in time for our "little 4th of July gathering." Making them was very simple. I just laid the cushion flat and measured seam to seam length and width. I made boxed corners and a slip back.
I of course didn't take pictures of the process because it was late, and I was crunching this in before heading to Palm Springs with girlfriends for a little r&r. I'd be happy to walk you through the process if you are interested, just email me.I also found this tutorial, which seems to be rather well written- the only thing I would change about it is that I used about a 6inch overlap on the back slip, 2 inches does not seem like enough when the cushion has to bend. I also added little ties to tie them onto the chair. Very easy and quick--and enough money left over for the shoes --Which I will be pairing with a tunic and tights for fall. How amazing do the shoes look with this fabric??
I'm seeing a tunic with a touch of red--either in piping or a band somewhere..maybe the sleeves. The fabric is from Amy's new line that will be out this fall...not exactly sure when but I cannot wait to get my hands on it....Soul Blossoms is her new line. It's uplifting and soulful, deep and colorful. Amy's fabrics are always a great choice.
