Porch Progress

A few weeks ago, I posted about one of my favorite outdoor spots ~ our screened-in porch.  While there's not much that's new, there's been a teensy bit of progress, so I thought I'd share my super cheapo pillows.

They started out as four pieces....I think they were supposed to be napkins, but they are 100% polyester, so didn't seem like they'd be good for napkins....I dunno.  Maybe that's why I found them at the thrift for 40cents apiece. 

The problem was, they were all slightly different sizes, and not big enough to make my favorite super duper easy envelope style pillowcases....and my sewing skills are severely limited.  I already had pillow forms to use and didn't want to have to use stuffing, so I improvised.  (Plus since these are outside, there's a good chance they'll get dirty, so it will be simple to take out the pillow and wash the sham).  One pillow got a velcro closure....

The other didn't have enough extra fabric, so I had to sew ribbons and tie them shut.

Anyway, I'm not totally in love with the pillows, but they were uber cheap, so when I get sick of them, I won't have to feel bad about it.  And they do show a little progress!  If you remember the last time I posted about this, you remember seeing this picture....

The pillows have been added (although I'd still like a few more), so next up...the table!  We've already started working on it and I can't wait to see how it turns out!!
