So instead I recovered the seat cushions. I had purchased a lovely creamy yellow over Thanksgiving at my favorite fabric store, A Fabric Place, when my mom was here. I finally got around to making them yesterday and finished them today!

Thrilling, right? I think so! Even though it's not a permanent solution, I do feel good that I reused the zippers from the old cushions and the foam/batting too after bleaching and washing them very well. I'm inspired lately by a book
my mom Santa sent for Christmas, A Handmade Home, that encourages reusing items already in your home. It's a great book - one of those that you could look through again and again and again and find ideas. That is my favorite type of gift.
