I decided the dogs needed a new cushion as the others were getting a bit threadbare. I took the original one and covered it first with material from an old duvet cover. That is a permenant cover now, as you can see from the blanket stitch! Then I made the removable, and therefore washable, cover with different pieces of striped cotton, yellow heavy cotton for the underside and then decorated it with a paw print applique in red check cloth. It didn’t take too long after the measuring and was fun to make. It closes with poppers/snap closures.
Two types of striped cotton – apron type weight – red checked cotton fabric, yellow heavy-weight fabric, old duvet cover and several snap fasteners.
Me for the pattern, old duvet cover for the lining cover, dogs for the modeling and testing phase – I think they like it!
