Of course It was only a matter of a day or so before I turned that panel into a cushion.
I’m gradually replacing all the scatter cushions that came with our big leather sofa as they’ve all got very tatty. I suppose they’ve done well to survive for 14 years really having been the plaything of two children (then teens), numerous puppies, dogs, kittens and cats, T.V. dinners and spilt wine.
The actual base of the sofa is still in good condition. Mr. Tialys is supposed to be re-doing the seat cushions in leather. I have only been waiting about 4 years for this to happen so far.
I salvaged the back of one of the original cushions and used it for the reverse of Lord Nelson.
With his red coat he fits in nicely doesn’t he?
Don’t worry, there will only be one cat. The rest will be done like so –
Still red so he’ll still fit in.
So, two of those done – only another twelve to go and then I can throw all the old ones out, having re-used all the feather inners first of course.
Apparently, I’m told the leather for the seat cushions has now been ordered but, considering I bought the Turkish woven fabric (as shown in the two cushions above) at least 4 years ago and have only made two so far, I suppose I’m in no position to criticise.
