No stopping me!

Well, now that I've learned to put in a zip, I haven't been able to stop.
I've been recoverring every cushion on my 2-seater and 3-seater couches.

3-seater not quite finished but here's the 2-seater.....

Before: (with the red fabric all frayed and splitting ... hard to see)


... and after ....


A patchwork couch!!! Hooray!!!!!

Very cute!

I have a couch that is screaming out to be covered, but I am too afraid to try. Maybe one day I will get the nerve and go for it!

Willow Lake Stitches said...

Love it ! Just love the scrappy look to it, mixing in all the different patterns. I can do zippers. . . and someday hope to be brave enough to do this. . . I am never confident enough in my color and pattern choices .

Looks great, thanks for sharing !

Love your patchwork couch! I have a couch and love seat that look almost like this. You've definitely inspired me!

Chandra the Crazed Quilter said...

That is fantastic! I am a big fan of pink and taking the couch from solid colors to a mix of prints is brilliant. I hope you don't mind imitators!

metrosupialdesigns said...

OMG, I was the same. I think my husband thought I had lost my mind. I still make pillows for every birthday and are onto some for displaying at the store for my Improv piecing classes.

I've never tackled the box construction, good for you!
