Oil cloth cushion inspiration

Posted on

Inspired by the beautiful weather we are expecting this weekend and desperately in need of some cushions to soften our old unforgiving wooden bench, I am going to run up some oil cloth cushions this weekend.

These have the added advantage of being able to sit on said bench without have to wait for it to dry out after the ubiquitous British shower (or water fight).

There is plenty of inspiration out there.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  1. I’ve been looking for some oilcloth to make placemats for ages and just can’t find any patterns that I like! I’m interested to see what you end up using πŸ™‚

    • I’ll let you know. Not a great selection of fabric shops round here in Wakefield but as it’s only the garden, as long as I find something bright, that’ll be OK
