On my home from work on Friday afternoon I went via DFO (Direct Factory Outlet) to look for some European pillow cases for the day bed on the porch.  Every six months or so I like to change them and ALWAYS manage to find a bargain at ADAIRS.

The photo above shows some cushion covers that I brought from Adairs last year (this years dust rags).

I never have to pay more than $5.00 each.  As we’ve just painted the porch dark grey, I was looking for grey covers. $49.95!!!!!!!! who pays this for a pillow case?????

I also spotted some cushions that were half price as they were shop soiled.  I decided to grab them too as I’m sure they’ll be looking twice as bad in a few weeks.

I’ve since washed them, the stain hasn’t come out completely but it’s on the back of the cushion, so it doesn’t matter.

I know, I know, they look wrong on this bench seat, I’m on my way to work and wanted to do this post before I run out the front door.

I also pulled out the sewing machine from under the bed and began stitching together this old tea towel for a cushion.  The machine started playing up so I finished it by hand.  It’s not perfect but I’m happy with the results.

    • Thank you!!! I found it at the op shop at Fairfield last year. I’ve got another tea towel with luncheon sausage and ham on it. I don’t think I’ll be turning it in a cushion!! Ha Ha.

  1. Thanks for liking my recent post ‘What’s in the box?’. I’ve just been preparing my next post which features some old linen tea towels like your kangaroo one and I commented how I don’t even use tea towels……….I feel the sewing machine may be getting a work out soon…….hmmmm, might even collect some more and get really crafty……the opportunities are endless 🙂

  2. Awww a kangaroo cushion, thought you might of had enough of wildlife around your place, ha. Daughter loves the trip to DFO a few times a year.
