I love going to fabric stores. It is like an overload on the senses – looking, touching and imagining. As I walk amongst the bolts of fabric, admiring the many beautiful fabrics, running my hands along them to feel them, my mind starts racing trying to envision where I could use them all. So many gorgeous fabrics – not enough projects!
On a recent fabric store adventure I came across this fabulous orange/white fabric that I fell in love with – I bought 2 yards.
I decided to use the fabric for seat cushions on the chairs in my enclosed front porch. My sewing skills gained from grade 7/8 Home Ec. are fairly rudimentary but I can sew cushion covers.
My front porch spring/summer cushions were looking faded and boring so the new orange/white gives the needed punch. The patterned pillows which coordinated perfectly came from HomeSense thanks to a good friend who found them for me! The twig furniture (hubby and I made many years ago), lots of potted flowers, good lighting to read with and candles in the evening makes this porch my summer oasis.

Wow, looks like such an inviting place! I definitely have porch envy, since I live in a bungalow with no front porch. And did you say you MADE those twig chairs??? That’s impressive. Tired to make a twig trellis once – fell to pieces within a month!
Yes, hubby and I made all the twig furniture about 20 years ago so they have stood the test of time. We love this space and use it alot. Thanks.
Great fabric choice! Orange is such a playful color and that design suits the color well.
