Project Day: One Floral Stack Please





Scraps of fabric. Everyone has some around. If you don't then head down to your local haberdashery and grab some remnants. You can turn them into cushions covers like I did here.
  • Keep it simple. I used a very basic "slip" design. No zips!
  • For the fabric on the back of the cushions I used and old sheet.
  • Make different sizes. Use different fabrics. Mismatched is great.
Exciting things are happening at Beach Vintage this week. I will let you know some details next week. Have a smile packed weekend all my lovelies. Simone xx

  7. I love these cushions. I can't believe I've never thought to make some of these wonderful projects I see everywhere. Probably because I still haven't had my own home.

  9. You always find the most beautiful fabrics and you always create something wonderful!
    I'm not at all handy with a needle and thread so I really appreciate that talent in others.
    Very pretty post!
    Have a great weekend!
    All the best,
    Eileen

  11. Leave us in suspense why don't you! I love the cushion covers. Have no idea of what a 'slip' design is basic or otherwise but I'll give anything a try! Enjoy your weekend. xx
