Several months ago, while I was out on an IKEA adventure, I picked up 2 white cushions for $5.00 each, with this exact project in mind. It literally took me months of hunting down the perfect fabric to cover them. I'm a bit obsessed with different textiles and its always impossible for me to settle on just one.
Here's the canvas, just waiting to be covered.
First, I stitched the cushions together in 6 places to keep them connected.
Here's the fabric that I chose, all pinned up and ready for action.
I found it on etsy.com, my favorite place to hunt down fabrics.
Sewing up the cushion cover on the sewing machine took no time at all. In less then a half hour I had a beautiful little cushion for under the nursery window.
The space still looks a bit bare, but I still have several projects in the works for this little nook under the window. Hoping to tackle some of those projects this weekend.
