The Orla Kiely Collection for Target is lovely. I bought a tablecloth (amongst a lot of other things), but couldn't bring myself to use it after remembering the fate of many a favourite tablecloth becoming curry-stain-ville after 5 uses. So I decided - I'll make cushion covers instead! That way I can stare at them all day, and even give them an occasional feel-up. It took me a week to gather up the strength to put scissors to amazing fabric, but once that initial hurdle was crossed, it took about an hour to produce three wonderful cushions. Since I am not a fan of hemming, I remembered to use the already finished edge of the tablecloth to my advantage and so only a square had to be sewed. I'm lazy like that. And my cushion covers ended up looking pro with the Orla label and all...
Thanks Grace, for featuring this on Design*Sponge!
