Patio Furniture Facelift

New reversible cushions and tablecloth brighten up the patio

 

This year our patio furniture covers were ready for a bit of a facelift, so I ordered some coordinating fabric and proceeded to freshen up our patio with new chair covers and a new tablecloth.  Here are a few photos of the process and the end results!  It was a fun project and really did not take that much time to complete and we sure have enjoyed them this summer.

Auditioning the fabric to see what to use where.

Once I traced the old cushions to create my pattern, I cut out and began to sew…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used a zipper foot to help to sew in the piping for the outside edges of the cushions.

 

 

Trimming around the curves of the cushions…

 

 

 

 

 

Once I turned the pieced cushions right sides out, I simply sewed the opening closed and the cushions were complete!

 

 

Of course, I added ties and velcro tabs so the cushions can be attached to the furniture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What have you been sewing this summer?  I would love to hear about some of your summer projects.  Last week we made some skirts for Belén and Eloise to add to their school wardrobe.  I’ll share in a future post!

Happy Stitching!
