My sprucing up the garden shed project continues. I showed you here how I printed the fabric with kids foam. I've finally gotten to sewing a couple quick seams on each piece of canvas. I didn't do any fancy sewing - I just sewed each side seam, stuffed in the foam and tucked it in all around. I know how to make fitted cushions but because these won't last that long outside, the less labor the better.
I'm basically happy how the fabric came out and looks on the cushions. For a first try, I will even say it was a success. The sunflowers we grow were the inspiration.
The scale of our landscape here is pretty vast and our little shed always looks lost sitting in front of the big hill. Aesthetically, a huge old red barn would look better to my eye. I've become realistic though and know that probably won't happen anyday soon. So we tinker around with the little shed, stuffing it full of gardening tools, hoses, stakes, wagons, outdoor furniture - it's pretty much full to the brim - a disorganized mess and catch-all. But you've got to have a place like that, don't you?
The last thing I want to do is paint the trim on the little window but honestly folks, I don't know when I will ever get to that! The days are getting shorter and shorter and I've got sunflowers to harvest.
