Mini Holiday.

 I have been visiting my daughter for 4 days, a mini break. She lives outside Bathurst NSW and this is her view from her back yard. Just wonderful.
 We had a lovely time and I love to sew as you know and one of the things we did was make over her couch and cushions. This is a before shot.
This is after, Leah loved the new cushion from Target and they had a bit of fun with her. The couch originally had 4 separate seat cushions that kept slipping and we decided to make them into 2 by adding a wool blanket slip to hold them together then we covered the seat in linen/cotton fabric bought from Spotlight which is now removeable for washing. All the back cushions were individual originally but are now all in one in their own pockets, also removeable for easy washing. It looks much neater, no slipping, fresh and modern with a classic twist.
I had the best time and cannot wait to see them again.

  1. Looks so good. It feels so much fresher than the old covers. Thank you so much for making such a big part of our little house look so good!
