Project Scabby Sofa

Bunting I can do, but transforming an old sofa into a fancy new one, this is a bit more of a challenge!

Please make me look pretty...

This is my latest venture. A little shop at my work is currently undergoing a re-fit, and while the main purpose of visiting the shop today was to collect our department’s camera, I ended up returning with two old scabby seat cushions! Di, the shop manager, has persuaded me to cover a nasty-looking sofa in some mismatched pretty prints so she can use in her office, matching the freshly painted white walls and pink, blue and yellow furniture.

Stinky old sofa cushions.

Whilst my washed fabric is drying (to use to make bunting also for the shop), I ponder the hows to make the cushion covers, although reckon it can’t be that hard. I will recycle the zips, unpick the exiting covers to make a template and bobs your uncle!

Watch this space to see how I get on…(it may be a while!)
