It took a LONG LONG LONG time to sew this sofa lining and pillows, but at the end I did it!!!
The striped fabric for the sofa lining was only 1.40 meters height but the sofa is 1.45 meters! I had to add a strip of fabric on one side and the joint is not visible! I’m so proud of that!
The closure with velcro is on the back side.
The pillows are made in a particular shiny cotton fabric (… I don’t know the name in English, in Italian it’s “rasatello”…) in the same colours of the sofa lining, orange and red. All the pillows are closed with a red zip.
The two pillows with frame pattern are in alternate colours (one side orange centre with red frame, the other side red centre with orange frame) so I can choose each time what kind of pattern I prefer and have the two pillows with the same colours or opposite!
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
