A project that has been on my "to-do-list" for a long time now is to recover the outdoor cushions for my bistro deck chairs. The bistro chairs and table came from a season-end clearance at Lowes about three years back. The set was outfitted with bright red seat cushions. The cushions were never my favorite but after just one summer of sun-drenched days the cushions were in really pitiful shape. Last week, I found some bright & cheery yellow outdoor fabric 50% off at Hancock fabrics. I only had to purchase 1-1/4 yards of fabric for this project. With the discount, that was only $12 worth of material.

|I love this outdoor fabric. It is from the "Dwell Studio" collection by Robert Allen.|
|I was able to reuse the black ties from the original cushions.|
The original cushions had "tufting" which gave them a more tailored look. The "tufting" was done by pulling yarn through and knotting it. I am considering adding this detail to the new cushions, any thoughts?
