My patio cushions have seen better days. they were basically powder for fabric and had holes and faded etc. We needed new ones so we were looking at what was on the market and the prices were kind of surprising and the fabrics weren't exciting to me. Over all it was going to be $200 for 4 cushions. I happened to see some cute turquoise watermelon outdoor fabric and thought I'd splurge and get enough for a tablecloth. While the gal was cutting it up I'd mentioned how fun it would be to redo the cushions on my patio but the cost would really have added up! When she rang up the fabric it was on CLEARANCE for $2 a yard! I bought the rest of the bolt! My dream was going to come true haha. All my outdoor decor is watermelons. When I was in high school my room was watermelon decor as well. So weird but hey I'm not normal! I'm artsy fartsy kind of gal ;) Anyway I picked apart the top and bottoms cushions and used it as a pattern and cute and re-sewed it up. Luckily the cushions were in decent condition. It worked and it's ADORABLE! I'm so thrilled with it and it only cost me like $25 and some time! What do you think?
