Simple enough, though they took me most of a day to sew up. Let's not even contemplate the week or so of squares being cut during spare moments. Our couches are dismal; sad, worn out creatures that deserve to be put out of their misery. But finances will not oblige, so I am in the very slow process of making the lounge room look shiny and new by dipping into my stash.

First on the agenda were three continental sized cushions, perfect for lying on the floor or snuggling on the couch. This was the warm up before the main event - recovering the sofa seats and tweaking a couple of store bought covers so that they no longer attempt to flee every time children approach the couches. That will probably take a bit of effort, but I hope to have it done before Christopher's birthday at the end of this month.

The new comfy additions have been approved by man, child and pet. I am pretty pleased with them too.

Love that fat, generous cushion! Also the lovely little dog snuggled down there!
I made my kinder- who were adults then, - bean floor cushions. They still have them.
