IT’S FINALLY PATIO SEASON! Can you tell I’m slightly pumped about this???
I have a really cute patio at my townhouse and all winter long it has been so depressing to walk out there and see nothing but ice and snow so I am super happy to have my table and chairs, some lights and such outside for eating/drinking with my friends (I’ll post on the whole patio soon!)
I got the cutest bistro set of table and chairs last year but they are not the most comfortable to sit on and I really wanted some cushions this year. Unfortunately, I had a hard time finding ones that I liked that were the right size for the chairs.
BUT then I went to Pier 1 Imports this weekend to see what they had, and I found these outdoor pillows that we so perfect. My chairs are orange (as you can see) and the table is white so I wanted to keep the cushions bright but maybe bring in some pattern. My pillows shown here are on sale right now too!
Now I know what you’re thinking…these are pillows not cushions and yes, you’re correct. But I mean, look at them. They are too perfect. So I decided to bust out my sewing kit and mediocre sewing skills and attach some ribbon to make them tie to the chairs.
This was so easy I swear! All I did was,
- Cut about 12 inches of ribbon
- Fold the ribbon in half, and line up ~ 1 inch from the edge that you want to attach to the chair.
- Line your needle with desired thread and begin simple stitch.
- Repeat with all pillows, and tie ribbon to secure cushion.
And that’s all! You may have to adjust where you sew the ribbon, depending on the size of your cushion/chairs.
