19 June: Cushions

19 June: Cushions

The cushions that match our curtains in the lounge were looking decidedly jaded - the inners had gone flat and they needed freshening up!
So, today, I removed the inners and put the covers in the washing machine, even though it said 'dry-clean'. They washed perfectly well.
Went to Wilkinsons to buy some new inners at 1.50 each (that 10 minute walk away shopping centre does come in handy)
Stuffed the new inners into the now dry covers but, unfortunately, the zips broke on three of them so...
spent a leisurely 15 minutes or so sewing them up.
Voila! New cushions.

other sizes: small medium original

Well done, think I need a trip to get new innards for ours as well!

Looking good - plenty here that need some attention if you're bored!

Y'see if you'd had them dry-cleaned, the zips wouldn't have gone ;o)) They make a good pic with that sheen, colour and curves :)

Very creative of you, they look as good as new.

Spooky - we have these curtains in our house in red - in fact, I liked them so much I have now bought them for two houses and we also wash them routinely rather than dry clean with no ill effect. Didn't know they made cushions though (perhaps cushions just not stocked by Trago!)

Great work, they look brand new.
