SYTYCD Week 5- Fabrics

Another week of So You Think You Can Decorate...this past week was "Safe" week, so I'm still in! = ) I am still a little in shock that I've made it to Week 5. The theme is "Fabrics"...


Rich, bright, happy fabrics

 ~A Patchwork Chair Cushion~

 

To make your tushy feel cushy!

 

I have been coveting some Anthropologie chair cushions for months now, but did not want to shell out $140 for four of them. But, I am a novice sewer; I've only had my machine for a couple months. If I can sew this, anyone can! To make this chair cushion, I thought of it as a puzzle- fitting the pieces of fabric together. I love Amy Butler fabrics, so I knew that they would be perfect for this project. And, I spent less on making four of them, then it cost to buy one from Anthropologie.
