In the new house, the sewing room has an old futon. It is very comfortable but the cover is terracotta and faded unevenly. I've had a throw on it, but have now replaced that with a fitted cover. The seat depth is a little too deep for me so I like cushions to support my back. Its a great place to sit when unpicking, drinking morning coffee, or for OH to chat whilst I sew.
It can also be a spare bed for guests, and the bedding is all stored underneath.
I didn't buy anything new for this project, which is good from both a financial and a reuse/recycle perspective.
The sofa cover is made from old curtain lining fabric. It is just a simple envelope with the far end left open.
I went for huge cushions, 65 x 65 cm, and stuffed them well as they tend to flatten down with use.
The cushion inserts are made from the front of the same curtains (plain thin cream cotton) stuffed with wadding from various unused smaller cushions etc.
The cushion cover fronts are made from another old curtain of mine, and the back from some really old curtains, from a friend's house many years ago.
