Chevron Chair cushions made from fabric scraps

I have had this little table and chair set for quite some time....Rylie is 6 and Cohen is 2. Needless to say, I bought it before we had our son, so it is still pink. I hope to get around to painting it soon with my fabulous chalk paint;) In the meantime, the metal chairs were not always the comfy-est, so my wee-ones resorted to plucking the decorative throw pillows off my living room furniture and sitting on them at breakfast. To save the pillows from syrup and milk stains, I raided my craft closet and found that I had just enough fabric left from my little man's curtains to create the chevron cushions and used scraps for the bird and the way, this chevron fabric can be found at Hobby Lobby and I am loving it in every color!

This one is for my little man....I will have to get around to painting the chairs something other than pink, but for now he hasn't noticed.... My 6 year old daughter told me I should do a tree stump, so she inspired this. She is turning out to be quite the little creative crafter:)

Her cushion.....A sweet little bird on a limb. I kind of cut off part of the picture...I used 4 different ribbons as the chair ties. I am not a seamstress, so if I can do this YOU can! Just sketch your shapes out and cut around them...wing it! It is not supposed to be perfect:) Copy these if you want! Pin your pieces on or use the iron on stuff sold by the yard at HL to hold in place as you sew. Measure your seat and add about an inch on each side when you cut your squares for the cushions....."Sew" easy! Have a great day! I am off to wrap gifts....
