Okay, so did you ever buy a remnant rolled up in one of those little bundles but you don't unroll it before you purchase it? I know, dumb. But I did. And, when I got home and opened it up, there was a flaw large enough that I could not cut two 18" pieces for a pillow. So I went to work on a plan, because now I don't want to drive all the way back to the store to return it. Well, I chopped it up into several pieces and created this great quarter turned design. I think it turned out really fun. Admittedly, it was a pain to make and took more time than it really should have, but, I like the result. This is outdoor canvas and it ended up being a 16" pillow. Lesson learned.See this pillow on sale now at Float Interiors

Beach Umbrella and Stripes Outdoor Canvas Pillows

I've been looking at this beach chair and umbrella outdoor canvas fabric for a month now at the store and finally broke down and bought it. I just love it! The fact that the stripes on the umbrella coordinate with the matching stripe fabric is even better. I think they make a great pair. I sewed the zippers in to the bottom seam on these. I found that when making an 18" pillow you use only a 1/2 yard when you put the zipper at the bottom as opposed to when I make a covered flap zipper in the back.See these pillows on sale now at Float Interiors
