Unfortunately I can't take the credit for these myself-I have to give it to Ms. Martha Stewart. I found this idea in her magazine years ago and have never really needed to try it but I always liked it. Then I convinced my husband to pull this old swing out of the shed and hang it up. Not only are my children thrilled with a swing big enough for the whole family but I also now had a reason to try making these fantastic table cloth pillows. SIDENOTE: one day the swing will be repainted and in prime condition.
So here is what you do:
1. Cut two pieces of tablecloth slightly bigger than the pillow you are using. The tablecloth obviously doesn't stretch so make sure you have it big enough.
NOTE: I was outside just today after having my pillows out for a few days and they get hit by the sprinklers and also got a bit of rain and one of them was soaked completely through-so I am thinking the waterproofness has it's limits-BE FOREWARNED. I was bummed, but they are still cute-just if you are going to have them hit with lots of water maybe pick something else.
