chair pillows

I am sewing pillows for dining table chairs. The chairs are old Ikea chairs and painted by DD.
 They are hers. But grandson said: they are too hard and cold, mum!
That's why I decided to make pillows.
 I have used the leftovers from this quilt to make the tops.  Patchwork squares 2,5 ".
I  never made chair pillows before.  Sewing the tops was easy!
 But making them fit for a piece of 2" thick polyester is an other story!
The first one was a disaster, Grrr... The second one went better and the third one is good :)
Now the fourth one will be a piece of cake , I guess.

Wat leuk dezelfde stoelkussens als de quilt! En ze zijn ook zo gezellig geschilderd! Je hebt ze prima gemaakt hoor. Mooi met een rand ertussen zoals het hoort.

I love that the chairs are all different colors. I'm sure the cushions are great. Those chairs certainly won't be cold and hard anymore. Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

Love the chairs. I've been wanting to make chair pads for my kitchen chairs for quite some time. They are very hard too.
