Remember my porch swing from my garden tour post? I finally made the cushions that I’d been wanting make!
I made the pillows the way I always make them (my tutorial is here), except this time the pillow were 20 inches instead of 18 inches.
Cushion Cover Pattern–
I made the cushion covers the same way I made the airstream cushion covers.
I got the umbrella fabric for free. It was a heavier weight home decor cotton, so it was perfect for this project. I didn’t have enough of it for the cushions and the pillows, so the pillows and cushion are navy blue on the opposite sides. I bought a little brown home decor cotton fabric for the sides of the cushion.
I finished these in time for my birthday party and the chicken coop tour, so I have been enjoying them all summer. They are holding up really well. I have figured out that I can prop the pillows up on one side and lay across it while reading a book. Add a nice breeze to that and it is so comfy. It’s my new favorite spot!
Just talking about it makes me wish I could get out there right now, except we are finally getting some much-needed rain this weekend. This could still be a nice spot into the fall though, as the porch is covered. It’s a nice spot to sit while Matt grills, which he does year round. Add a blanket to that equation and I think I will be able to enjoy this spot way into the fall!
