Sewing Adventures: Cushion Covers

Last week I showed you the lovely fabric I ordered off of Etsy and just the other day I told you that I received the package in the mail! I was so excited when I saw the little brown box just waiting for me to open it! Isn't mail simply delightful? I almost prefer to make my purchases online because I also get the anticipation of waiting for its arrival! Anyway, here's a reminder of the fabric that I purchased...

And here's the fabric all sewn up into a couple of cushions...

I was on a bit of a roll in the sewing department, so I made a couple more cushions using a piece of fabric I had draped over the back of my couch. You can see it here...

The fabric was actually a small tablecloth that I purchased from a home decor shop. I love its colour and texture. While I liked the look of having it on the back of the couch, it was very annoying because it always fell down and got all wrinkled. I've been meaning to sew it into a cushion cover for some time now. So, that's what I did.

I also sewed a smaller, lumbar cushion out of the fabric, but the only picture I have of that one is this...

You can see the smaller cushion in the corner! I'm very happy with how they all look together and  to boot, I got four new cushions for very little money. Because I already had the inserts and the tablecloth, I only had to pay for the new fabric which cost me around $16 (including shipping). Not bad! Have you purchased anything from Etsy or another online shop lately? I hope you have just as much fun waiting for mail to arrive as I do! 

P.S. I sewed the buttons on the baby sweater that I knitted. So, as promised, here are a couple of pictures...

P.P.S. This post has been linked up to Good Life Wednesdays over at A Beach Cottage.
