before & after...

Found this at a garage sale.... wasn't crazy about the blue.. 



and the AFTER.... 



Cushions made of oilcloth - if you read my blog you know I use oilcloth for many projects! 
and always use 2 or more fabrics... this is reversible... strawberry vine on one side and polka dots on the other... 
  

Love the polka dots!  




Love the flirty detail on this bench! 

Don't you love her?

I have never sewn with oil cloth...is it easy? is it inexpensive? is it waterproof? I have to recover outside cushions and love the idea of this - should I??

Just bought this EXACT sofa at a vintage shop, with chairs and tables to match! Wanted to paint it red and do turquoise cushions!!! The only problem, I am really not very handy with a sewing machine. Great job and thanks for sharing. Take care, Laura
