i made this! - seat cushion
This is the seat cushion for my old wooden desk chair. It's my second sewing project and my first time piecing fabric together and doing binding. I rushed it and you might not really be able to tell by this photo but some of my seams don't line up and the binding is a mess. I didn't really care though seeing as it was just going to be a seat cushion and my butt was going to be all over it. Ha!
I used this tutorial to create the zig zag design. I made it in an envelope style. I suspect all the pillows I do will be in this manner as I have no desire to attempt hand sewing and I like the idea of switching them out once in a while without having a bunch of pillows all over the place. The fabric I believe is Moda - Bliss. It was given to me by my friend Gale over at Stamps and Stitches. It's the coordinating fabric to the quilt that she made me.
