I've been wanting some new cushion covers for ages, and finally I carved out some time to whip some up.
I bought this IKEA fabric almost a year ago, and finally decided to cut into it. You've probably seen this design all over Pinterest already and may be quite sick of it, but I still do love it.
I attempted to sew some bolster pillow covers in plain black, using small pieces of this fabric appliqued on to tie it all together without being excessively matchy-matchy. Anyway, I hated them so very much. I didn't even finish the first one. I may just remove the applique and leave them black.
I also cheated and sewed these onto the previous worn and faded covers, thereby removing the need to attach a zipper. Hurrah for cutting corners!
They are cheerful and as-yet unsullied by my children. Phase one of Pimp My Living-room complete.
