Instead of blogging about the cutest baby in the world turning 10 months, the pinterest fairy strikes again! Typical... But, I have just made these ah-dorable cushion covers for our sofa!
The pattern is a tan herringbone. Love. Love. Love.
I started off picking up the fabric from Walmart ($2.50/yard thank you very much). You need at least 2 times the width of the pillow and 3 times the length. So for these two 20"x20" pillows I bought 3 1/3 yards. Width-wise, it was just perfect as is. Length-wise, it worked fine, but I think I would've liked a little more fabric to play with, so I would say maybe a little more than 3 times the length. Then I cut my long piece of fabric in half, and wrapped each pillow like a present. The hardest part for me was tying the knots. Thanks to my OCD they had to be just right. I finally finished the first one after several many attempts. And then I got the second one on the first knot! But, they didn't look the same, so I messed around with them until I was satisfied, and that was it! Uber-easy. Now the trick will be keeping the dogs off of them!
I was inspired (and instructed) by this pin:
It was from here... lots of "insanely easy" DIY projects (aka my speed and talent level). I fully plan on trying a lot more of these little projects. I know, you are just as excited as I am. Stay tuned...
