Cushions. Thursday , October 26th , 2017 - 05:08:08 AM
The great benefit of chair pads is that as well as adding additional decoration they are also highly functional. Sometimes hard pine kitchen chairs are just not that comfortable, lets face it. The addition of an extra cushion makes all the difference.
One of our new shops sells fabrics. We have had similar stores in and out over the years but they have found it tough to stay afloat. The big box has some sewing essentials but not many plus it is off my list of places to go. The owner of the fabric shop is a casual acquaintance as our sons wrestled and played football together. On my first visit, the shop was pretty quiet so we had a chance to chat and I was able to snoop around and discover the variety of fabrics, notions, and quilting materials available. And so, even though it is August and summer is nearly gone, I decided to join the legion of sewers and make covers for my outdoor furniture.
On the second stop the shop was bustling, exciting for a fledgling business, but the owner had plenty of time for me. We found a perfect outdoor fabric in greens, tans, and reds, measured out the yards, found thread and stuffing for pillows and my sewing adventure began. I have sewn off and on over the years so I have experience, but I am not a regular at my machine. Fortunately it is a trusty Singer, a graduation gift 42 years ago, and it runs with glee. I gathered up my old cushions, washed and dried them, shook the stuffing back into every corner, and then set them atop my fabric. I cut one large cover for my favorite rocking chair and fashioned two pillows for my swing (one a cover-over and the other a new creation). After seams were in place I shoved in the old cushions, stitched up the hole left for stuffing, and had sparkling new ones.
