Neighbor Shelly’s couch cushions were a little too squishy so she decided to replace them with new firm cushions. Her couch is so much more comfortable for sitting now, but those cushions still had a lot of life left in them. She had five, but I only took two. They’re kind of big and I felt overwhelmed about trying to stash them somewhere until I could cover them.
I used the last of my awesome Barnslig fabric from Ikea to cover the cushions. I’ve used to decorate tons of stuff in Izzy’s room. Her upcycled cat litter bucket now toy storage bucket, the crib rail protector, and a crib quilt. I definitely need to go back and get more before they discontinue the pattern. I just love it!
I’m so proud of myself. I actually made gusseted corners for a perfect box fit and sewn in zippers so I can take them off and wash them. This was my third time ever sewing in a zipper on something. I messed up the first time, and had to tear it out, and do it over again, but I am very pleased with the end result.
Izzy was having so much fun “falling” into the cushions and jumping on them. I really am bummed now that I didn’t take all of them.
I wonder if she’s going to go through that brooding awkard phase when she’s a teenager? I’m thinking she’s going to totally be over it because we blast Bauhaus in her playroom. What do you think?
