“I Made That!” Monday – Chair Cushion Cover

A few weeks ago The Boy and I redecorated our kitchen. I used some pretty tartan-style fabric to make a table runner and matching curtain to hide our bin.

Recently I’ve been playing with re-purposing and up-cycling old and worn clothes!

We’ve had a number of old and worn jeans being removed from our wardrobe lately and I’ve been harvesting as much as I can from them.
