Outdoor Fabrics~Red

Hi everyone!
Our patio chair cushions really need a makeover. The sun has faded them and well, they are pretty old. Although I will probably just make some slipcovers for them out of thrifty fabric finds, I thought I would check out some online fabric sites for different outdoor fabric ideas.
Wow, I could not believe how many options there are out there! A lot of vintage inspired prints was what I was noticing a lot of. And I found myself being attracted to reds. So, I thought I would share some of my fabric discoveries.
So, R is for Red!
floralsThe pricing of the fabric ran from $8.95 - $21.95 a yard.
boldMost of the fabric was 54” wide fabric. So, I figured I would need at least 2 yards per cushion (x4).
fun   So, about $80.00 + shipping and any notions I needed would be the cheapest cost to do all 4 cushions. Hummmm, I don’t see that happening! Not on my budget. Okay, back to the drawing board!
But, it was fun to look at all the beautiful fabrics! Do you buy fabric and re-cover your cushions or do you buy new ones?
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

  4. I would love any of those vintage red floral patterns but my budget won't allow for that either. Guess i will just have to make do for now.
    Love the title of Rednesday...very clever.

  5. I love the red and white fabric, 3rd photo on the first row. Of course, I buy new cushions. I can't sew but even if I did, the cost sounds way too much. I actually ordered my cushions off Ebay for a lot less than what the store sells them for. You might want to check for fabric on there too.

  6. Nope, no sewing here. I'm not at all handy with a needle and thread.I do remember reading, on one blog last year, that to re-do an outdoor table umbrella, use a round tablecloth. Cut hole in middle to go over the pole top and then attach to the existing worn-out umbrella. Now that project might be a possibility. We'll see.

    You found some nice fabrics,though, Diann. Susan

  8. Oh I would jump on that Flamingo fabric...well except for the cost and the fact that I don't sew...hmmm guess not then! I got new cushions 2 yrs ago on sale at GardenRidge in a very cool vintage looking fabric. hugs, Linda

  9. Oh those are some gorgeous fabrics! I love fabric shopping, but I love going to fabric outlets because of their lower prices (or I use a %40 off coupon for Joanns). I am lucky to have two near me. I like to recover my cushions, and I am about to recover my couch throw pillows, so I am looking for inspiration. Thank you for sharing your search.
    Hugs,
    Terri

  11. Hi Diann!

    Your fabric choices look wonderful but I agree....that outdoor fabric can be expensive.
    If you have a JoAnn's near you, check out their selection. I got some lovely black & white damask for outdoor use, & I was able to apply my 40% coupon, as well.
    Good Luck!

    fondly,
    Rett
