I bought this fabric at Wal-Mart at the end of last summer, thinking I'd have lots of time to make new chair cushion and pillow covers over the winter. I finally got it out again this week. Sewing is not exactly my forte but I can usually get the job done.
I decided to use both fabrics on each cover so I could change the look now and then. I'm pretty pleased with the outcome.
These chairs came from my Aunt Eleanor and Uncle Ed's home. They lived just up the street from us when I was growing up. I used to stop by sometimes on the way home from school. Aunt Eleanor would always have grape juice and cookies. (She's the only one I've ever know who served those together but I have such sweet memories!!) When she was moving out of her home, her daughter asked if I wanted these chairs for my front porch. I thought they would fit perfectly! They've been on OUR porch for over 20 years!
When we built our home in 1991, Wonderful Hubby built me this porch swing using the left over wood from our floors. Isn't it beautiful? Our porch faces East and this swing is the perfect place to sip my coffee and read in the morning. I decided to make a cushion for it, too.
I used some cushions I had from another project. What a difference this little bit of color and comfort added!! I can't wait until it stays warm so I can enjoy more mornings on our front porch!
What are you doing to get ready for Spring??
