This cushion involved first making my own piping. I got the tutorial for how to do that here (it wasn't hard, just took a little while). And I got the bench cushion tutorial here. It's definitely not perfect, but I'm fine with that.
As for the pillows . . . I scored these cream-colored throw pillows at a yard sale back in September for a dollar each. Yippee!! I then embellished them with leftover fabric. It was a bit different than my original plan, but I actually like it better.
And here's the lowdown on the cost of this project, just because it's fun to keep track of stuff like that. Mind you, this isn't exact, but a rough-ish guesstimate of how much I spent.
Bench: free (old toybox that my Grampa made years and years ago)
Paint: leftovers from other projects
Urethane: no idea, but I didn't use much :)
Fabric: gift from my mom several years ago
Rope (for the piping): maybe a couple dollars for the amount I used?
White fabric for piping: in my stash, bought on clearance at Walmart last year
Red bandana fabric: also in my stash, leftover scraps from another project
Foam for cushion: a little over $7
Batting to cover foam: in my stash, no idea how much it originally cost
Total: around $10-12, give or take a little. Not bad, if I do say so myself! :)
