Tomorrow is the first day of June (what?!) and soon Summer will be in full swing. So I thought this would be a good time to share a simple project idea that would be the perfect addition to your patio or home and add a pop of colour for the warm days ahead. And what better to do this with than a vibrant Mexican print? I keep seeing beautiful Mexican- inspired rugs and decor on Instagram and Pinterest, and this DIY is a fun way to incorporate it into your home just in time for Summer.
Basic cushion covers are quick and easy to make even if you don’t sew a heck of a lot and are a great beginner sewing project. My Mum recently gave me her old sewing machine and I’ve been enjoying trying it out for some simple sewing projects like this one. I found the fabric I used at one of my favourite thrift stores but you really aren’t limited with the fabric you use, just consider how much wear and tear it will receive and choose a fabric accordingly. While I had my patio in mind while making this, it’s ended up being a fun addition to Liam’s room (see photos at the end of the post). It’s a quick and easy project, and perfect for adding a fun pop of colour. See below for the how- to.
Materials:
– fabric*
– measuring tape
– fabric chalk
– pinking shears
– pins…
