Recently my friend Marianne was cleaning out her attic and came across some outdoor cushions she was no longer using. She emailed and asked me if I wanted them. When she told me the colors, which are bright pink, lime green, blue and white, I thought at best I could probably recover them and reuse the pillow forms. Those aren't really colors I use here at home. She also had a quantity of the fabric she was willing to pass along. Fabric I can ALWAYS use!When I brought them home it occurred to me they might work in the backyard. Can you believe it? They're prefect!!! Particularly with all the pinks we have in our garden.
Thank you Marianne!!!
This is one of two coordinating stripes on the roll of fabric Marianne gave me.
One good turn deserves another, so I made one of the stripes into a small tote for a gift to Marianne. She tells me she loves the fabric and is trilled to still have a bit of it, reworked into what she will use as a small knitting bag.
I had some solid blue in my stash which worked as the outside for a couple of bags with the stripes as lining. You can find them at my Etsy Shop.
