I still have a lot of extra fabric left over from the window treatments that I made.
So I decided to make some cushions for my chairs. I started by cutting 2 inch squares.
(Now I never made chair cushions, but seen pictures, don't look that hard)
Then sewed them together to make a large square.
I bought 4 squares of foam 2 inches thick at a local store. Measured my chairs and cut them to fit.
Then cut my squares to fit. I did cut batting and attached it with sticky spray. I thought they would look better (plus more padding) if they were quilted.
Oh my, poot KC is complaining and trying to get my attention. I got so involved, I forgot it was her supper time. As you can see, she didn't forget, lol.
After feeding KC, I quilted the top of the cushions, in the ditch of each square and trimmed the batting.
I decided to go with a plain backing. There is some fabric left over and you never know, I could think of something for it. Anyway, you sit on the cushions and no one will see the back.
Then I cut 1 1/2 inch strips, sewed right sides together and turned right side out. These will hold the cushions on the chairs.
OK, I sewed the cushions together put the foam in and hand sewn them shut. Not bad,and they are comfortable.
But I learned a lesson, next time I will make them bigger, because when you sew the top and bottom together, and stuff with foam, they shrink a little. (Gee, I should have realized that.)
I just got an idea. As I was taking pictures, I realized that I don't have a clock. Now I know what to make with the rest of the fabric. That way when I am in here sewing poor KC will get her supper on time, lol.
HAPOY QUILTING EVERYONE!!
