Here is one of the fun projects I have been waiting to attack. We have some nice rockers outside and a wicker loveseat and then these plastic chairs. They are plain and needed a little update. Today I made cushions for them.
I started with these reusable bags leftover from a youth group beach party in the Spring.
I love the colors and the print definitely says Summer!
I had this leftover egg crate mattress that I had already cut up and make some pillows out of...
I had three good-sized pieces left
I just place each piece on top of a bag and figured out where to cut...
the egg crate has a grid-like design so I didn't even measure
Then I stuffed each bag with the cut cushion
I sewed the bags closed just going across the top... simple straight stitch
then I cut the handles in half to make ties for the cushions
I did some quick stitching and cutting with pinking shears just to give the ties a finished look
headed outside and tied them in back
and here is the final product:)... the whole project took me less than a half hour
and the cushion really brighten up the chairs and make them more comfortable.
I love how they look and also that I used up what I had instead of spending a ton at the store.
we are definitely having supper out here tonight:)
Super fun, quick, and thrifty!
Hope you have a wonderful Saturday!
Praying you have many blessings and much joy!
