The place where we bought our living room furniture offers additional services in the form of sewing cushion covers. We had them make our black/white covers but I wasn’t very impressed with their work. And so, despite my heart’s protestations, I set out to sew a new set. Protestations, yes. Because I find sewing things for the home, especially ones that involve nothing but straight stitches, unbearably boring.
But I remembered that I am an adult and sucking it up with regards to some unbearably boring things comes with the territory. Of course, it helped that I used a color that I like and that Egg served as my muse.
I am not kidding about Egg being my muse. The first cover I constructed was for the big cushion above. It always helps to start with the most difficult step if you’re about to do something you don’t like, you see. After I replaced the old cover, Egg hopped to the cushion and made herself comfortable. That inspired me to finish all covers in a single afternoon.
Here is Egg again showing you the yummy color of the cover:
