Project Forty Two: Circular Cushions for the Stools (Finally)

April 20, 2011

Remember those stool cushions I made oh so long ago, back in February? Well I can’t believe it took me so long to actually get round to making the cushion covers for them! Actually, I think it was partly to do with how the first one, made for the boy’s room, turned out. I wasn’t happy with its saggy appearance and didn’t want to attempt the next two, with some much-loved reindeer fabric I brought back from Sweden, with the possibility that they would look awful.

Finally I decided to keep it simple, and instead of making cushion covers with a side panel and zip, just made more of a flat cushion cover, from two circles of fabric sewn together. I then decided to make it even simpler and sew the covers closed over the cushions, instead of faffing with a zip. They are small enough to be washed complete with cushion if needs be.

So there you go, finally, we have some cushions for our stools, made from this brilliant reindeer fabric.

    very funky! its amazing the difference a little piece of fabric can make, that’s why i’ve got boxes of it, always gets used in the end.
