This week I've been working my way through a huge pile of foam squares my dad recently gave me!
|Poppy getting in on the action!|
I've particularly enjoyed using my mini power tool for trimming the foam to size!

I will be teaching a workshop in the summer on patio/picnic cushions, and have been experimenting with some class samples.
These covers are un-patchworked (such a word?) and have piping and a Velcro opening.
Next up I tried a smaller patchworked version. I have an upholstery needle on order and might try sewing some buttons on this one.
Finally, I couldn't resist recycling some denim for a hard wearing cover, also with piping, but this time with a zippered opening.
So in addition to a quick lesson on how to make your own bias binding, there are a few different elements here for folks to try out on their cushions.
I've really enjoyed making these and will definitely be making more! All we need now is for summer to arrive!
