Sprucing up Some Bench Cushions

It was a little anticlimactic after my mostly non-creative month of January to have the first project I dive into be recovering some bench cushions, but it is what it is.

A few months back, while I was in the middle of the baby boom and Christmas-making rush, Mr. Skooks' aunt asked me if I could recover some cushions for her. She had heard/seen the couch cushions I made for Mr. Skooks' mom and decided to "hire" me for the job.

I know everyone likes a good before and after, but alas . . . I didn't take a before. I guess you'll just have to trust me that the fabric was some beyond repair white and blue floral print that hadn't been tended to much for 10 years or so. I was able to salvage the zippers and reuse them in the new cushions which were then recovered in some very simple and basic, but sturdy, blue fabric.

Woohoo. Are you excited? I know I was 8 hours later when they were done. Oy.

Remind me . . . no more cushions for awhile, mmmkay? They are not difficult, but they are tedious and not very exciting to make. I'm looking forward to working on some more creative projects soon.
