So, I left you with the fabric stapled with only the cushion and double welting left to go. I don't know if I've told you this before but I definitely do not enjoy making cushions. First the cording isn't fun to put on (not hard just not fun). Then, you have to get the zipper on. Next is sewing it all together. Ouch, those needles don't feel good poking into you either. Here is a picture of all parts of the cushion before the sewing commenced.
Sorry no pictures of the process. Did I mention I really don't care to make cushion covers?! Needless to say my lack of enthusiasm dictated no pictures of this part. On to the cording! Everything was going so well. I was in the home stretch. I sewed up the double welting and started to glue away! That was when the last hiccup occurred and I screamed and screamed. Okay not really but I may have hit my head against the wall a couple of times.
After I got past my little mad spell, that is when I figured out what I did. You see, when I measured out the cording, I must have stretched it tight. Well, it is only logical that I must not have pulled it that tight when sewing the double welting because this is what I ended up with.
I dragged back out everything to sew about 4 inches of cording. Grrr!!!!! In case you forgot what she started out looking like, here is the before:
Now, hold on to your seat and say goodbye plaid.......
Not too shabby.
