Outdoor Cushions Upcycle
*** Fabric was gifted by Fabric Wholesale Direct in exchange for a blog post feature***
If you read my previous blog post Fabric Wholesale Direct Collab, then you know that I've been gifted several lengths of fabric from Fabric Wholesale Direct (FWD) in exchange for featuring these fabrics on my blog. And if you read that blog post carefully, you know that my first project was going to be recovering some outdoor cushions with the silver Ottertex Waterproof Canvas. And it's done!!
Would you love to sew your own Inara, but worried about the length? I've got you covered! If you take a look at the measurements chart for this robe, you will find the back neck to hem measurement. This will help you to determine if you'd like to lengthen or shorten your robe at all. Once you figure that out, come back here for these easy tutorials on how to hack the pattern to fit you better!
Fabric Wholesale Direct Collab
A few weeks ago, I got an email from Joe at Fabric Wholesale Direct (FWD) asking if I'd like to partner with them. I could pick out $100 worth of fabric from the site, and get it for free. And in exchange, I would write up a blog post tutorial about the project I choose to make from it and link back to their website. I eagerly agreed, and spent the next few hours pouring over all the fabrics they offer. And here's what I found: $100 of fabric at FWD is WAY more fabric than I realized.
I started out with just one project in mind, to recover several outdoor cushions I picked up for free. And I was pleasantly surprised to find some waterproof fabric options for my project, with a wide selection of colors. I decided on Ottertex waterproof canvas in silver, and added my yardage to my cart. But even with 7 yards, it was nowhere near the $100 limit, so I took another look around the site to see what else I might like. I decided to add several more fabrics to my cart, and make this a blog series instead of just one post. This first post is just a rundown of all the fabrics I picked out, and future posts will be about what I make from each fabric. I can't wait!
