It was time for new cushions, something lighter and brighter...what was I thinking with the old ones? I purchased the outdoor fabric at Joanne's at 50% off....love!
I covered the seat cushion by machine sewing an "envelope" - 3 sides of the fabric, stuffing the cushion in there and then hand sewing one end closed. Yup, it will have to be spot cleaned. For the pillows, I cheated by folding the edges of a square piece of fabric under and sewing it directly around to the top edge of each pillow... so the other side is still a solid color. I always loved sitting under our pergola but now it's so much more enjoyable. It really makes me smile.
