I did the whole nine yards....zippers and welting.
It took me 2 afternoons to get it done-and I am a pretty good seamstress!
That got me thinking about all the blog posts telling about how easy it is to do stuff like this!
Well it can be done but it isn't EASY!
Now look at these cushions!
I did them in about an hour!
I didn't use a sewing machine!
They look pretty good too!
Now that is Sweetwater Style!
AND-Like it says in the blog header...."You can do it too!
Read on to find out how!
If you can sew on a button-you can do this!
If you can wrap a box-you can do this!
Square cushion form-these were in my closet left over from some other project
Quilt batting-watch the coupons at fabric stores....great time to buy batting.
use giant basting stitches to close the edges on the form so it doesn't shift when you sit on it
Step 2: Lay the cushion on the fabric and cut a piece big enough to wrap around the cushion.
leave a good amount of overlap-you can always trim it away later.
Bring the sides up and lap them over....pinning along the two sides.
Step 6: Run an iron over your seams for a finished look!
Hmmmm.....remember the sheets on the couch....click on the photo if you don't....
If you aren't a big sewer....I bet you could do the almost no-sew technique to do this too!
I am sure you can "just do this" too!
