When was the last time you saw the cost of foam at the fabric store!? Highway robbery! So even though the treehouse needed some floor cushions, I wasn’t about to pay $40 for just a foam insert. Then I found some outdoor furniture mix-match cushions on clearance for 8 smackers. I took out the cushion (and saved the heavy duty fabric for a future project) and found tree-themed fabric to recover with:
The next step was to cut down the foam and puzzle it together so one cushion could make two and I discovered cutting thick foam is a total pain. You are going to love this, cut it with you electric knife… those babies aren’t just for Thanksgiving anymore! I cut through in like 10 seconds and I loved using that darn knife I store all year long and I think I have used twice. It worked like a charm:
I followed the same steps of previous sewing projects, such as this pillow and added some handles on one end so the kids could move them easily:
With my electric knife and my sewing machine we ended with some pretty awesome cushions.
I hope you have some great weekend projects planned!
