|This is the back of the upper cushion!|
|I didn't dare take this construction apart so I traced the pieces with chalk.|
Last week I wanted to sew the cushion for my Week 4 upholstery project. I've never liked sewing welting, and my mind was not changed. The book More Sewing for the Home did lead me through cutting out a new cushion pattern, sewing on the welting, and sewing all the pieces together. I couldn't have done it without the pictures leading me by the hand.
I spent as many hours putting this sucker together as it probably would have taken me to put together a 3D puzzle when all the pieces are the same color. I sewed into my finger once, repinned everything at least three times, refilled the bobbin too many times to count, and yelled at my sewing machine... a lot.
But I have a cushion that fits and is straight. Don't look at it too closely. Who does that anyway?
