The Pop Up Princess: Reupholstering your camper cushions

From the bloggers at Pop Up Princess.

I’m a decent seamstress, but cushions seemed to be a far more difficult project than I was ready for.  I thought about leaving them the way they were, but this is what I was dealing with.  Yuck, right?

When I was putting together a round up of my favorite pop up camper makeovers, I was really inspired.  I wanted my camper to look every bit as nice as theirs did.  I just knew something had to be done about the cushions, so I bit the bullet and started planning.  Planning, for me anyway, always involves a few hours on Pinterest.  I came across this awesome tutorial for sofa slipcovers, and it was my bible.

Before I even started shopping for fabric, I made a prototype out of a leftover drop cloth I had lying around.  I wanted to make sure I knew exactly how the covers would fit and just how much fabric I would actually need.  I considered skipping this step.  I hate extra work, in fact, I seldom even baste when a pattern calls for it.  I’m lazy like that… but I wanted to do things right this time around.  I cannot stress enough how much help having a working example was.  It really did make the whole process run more smoothly, because I made most of my mistakes on the prototype.  We’ll get to those other mistakes a little later.   😉
