Nautical Cushion Covers

We've had our lounge room cushion covers for about 8 years, and they've starting to look grubby. I hadn't found it necessary to replace them, until I found this nautical themed fabric in my op shop on Tuesday, the lady only charged me $2 for it!

For my first ever home made cushion cover, I used my existing cover as a template, and followed the same fold-over rather than introducing a zip. It took me just under an hour to complete them both, it is possibly the easiest sewing project ever!

Herewith, my first cushion cover refashion:


  1. Well done! They will make your house feel more summery!

  2. Thank you! Yes you are right, very summery, and 'beachy'
