I finished these cushions in December, but am only blogging about them now because I don't love them. I like them, and they are a nice change from the old cushion covers but something isn't sitting right with me.
I think the problem might be the dark green colour in the fabric. although I love green, I am not a fan of a deep, forest green.
I do love that they are made out of home dec fabric though and retain a great shape and are sturdier than regular cotton covers. And I love the enclosed zipper finish - much nicer than seeing a zipper up one side seam.
But I'm still not in love with them. And you have to be in love with nine cushions that are scattered around your loungeroom all the time! So I think I'll keep them out for another few months and in the meantime start hunting for the perfect fabric to make new covers with!
Just another project to add to my list of things to do...
And what to do with the old covers??!
