New outdoor cushions for a preloved rattan setting. The fabric is gorgeous from Mokum Textiles. A big improvement from the old, very tired fabric.

Ok – enough is enough ……….it is high time the cushion for the outdoor rattan lounge was recovered. Yes, I know Jed looks very comfortable and even once a new cover is completed I’m sure he will like it just as well.
I am using an outdoor foam which is more expensive, but it allows any water to run through.
It came slightly too big. As I don’t have a foam cutter (they are quite expensive) I am using an electric bread cutter (you can get one under $ 20.00). No, I’m not completely NUTS, it does a pretty good job.
As long as you have the line marked and cut straight up and down it does a fairly good job.
Once the foam was cut it was just a matter of cutting the material and get sewing. I love the contrast of pattern on one side and the stripe on the other. Instead of a zip I decided to put velcro right down one side as I am sure the dog will still make it his resting place – therefore frequent washing. It makes it easier to get the cover off and on.
