I found some green-ish-aqua-ish fabric in the "swap shop" at our recycle center the other day.....it looked like the perfect color for Island Girl....
I need some soft pillows for the boat....so I just started with a big square "pocket".
Measured to fit this pillow that was actually on the boat when we bought it.
To finish the final seam of the "pocket" - I just secured the extra fabric - and sewed it closed. (Not worth putting in a zipper, in my opinion!)
Sewed once - removed the pins and did a second, parallel seam.
And here are the pillows, very nice match to the sunbrella accents on the boat! And comfy too!
