i originally bought the oilcloth to make a table covering for kitchen table. i figured it would be perfect of all sorts of arts & crafts projects with the kids, nymcn & just about any other time i might need to protect my table. unfortunately i forgot the one rule i remember from 7th grade home ec: measure twice, cut once. maybe it was because i was cutting at 2 am, maybe it’s because am i’m blonde, maybe i actually just measured wrong. whatever the case may be, i ended up cutting my fabric way too short – it would never fit my kitchen table. so i had to figure out something to do with all this oilcloth. and then i spied my patio table, with the boring green chair cushions that we inherited, along with the table & chairs, & inspiration struck. so i whipped up a new tablecloth (& when i say whipped, i mean cut it to size), & then sewed up some matching seat covers. i love the buttons smack dab in the center, which help the pillows gather & poof in all the right places. thanks carrie & chelsey for that brilliant idea. now i just have to host s summer bbq, & show off my newest creations…. look for an invitation coming soon to a mailbox near you..
What ridiculously cute cushions! Great job turning a spoiled tablecloth into a hot hot hot patio accessory! :)
