Do you know how hard it is to find outdoor pillows in the end of the July? I have looked everywhere and they are gone. So then I thought I would make them. So I went to Joann Fabrics and they had some cute outdoor fabric. But it was $16.99 a yard! I don’t think so.
So then my wheels got a turnin’. I have shared before that my friends save random things for me that most people would throw in the garbage. They say, “Oh Beckie I found a half-chewed piece of caramel…surely you can make something out of it!” Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration. So my friend Lisa asked me if I wanted a table umbrella that didn’t work because the wood base had expanded and the wood would not fit back together again. I say, “Sure why not.” In my mind I am thinking I can sand the wood down and make it fit back into place again.
Well after we built our deck I realized that I don’t need the umbrella because we get afternoon and evening shade (which would be the only times we would need an umbrella around the table). But we do need pillows. So what do I do? Cut the whole thing apart and make some pillows.
