Cushion covers - day bed revamped again!

From 1-24th Dec I give to you my blog advent calendar.
Each day you can click on the numbered 'door' to 'open' it and find some Christmas upcycled/recycled goodness!
Enjoy!



-----------------------------------------------------------

A couple of months ago - I used some old curtains to cover the cushions on our daybed outside that were a little worn and old.  I wasn't happy with the result - so this week I had another go!

The cushions are reversible so that they match either of the large beach towels that we're now using to cover the main matress on the base:



Much better than before wouldn't you say?

Amazing the difference a splash of colour can make! Thanks to everyone who commented on my original post with suggestions!

Another reason I was making cushion covers this week, was because my youngest daughter wanted to make a sparkly cushion cover for herself.


She did very well with the pinning and sewing herself!



And she is rightfully proud of the result!

I'm enjoying having my girls around and being able to share my days and what I do with them!
