You may remember before Xmas I was ordering fabric and being impatient....
Well the fabric returned and I was delighted with the results...over the moon in fact! Striking cushions were created.
And then I realised that the "half panama" fabric that I'd ordered (never heard of it before but liked the feel and colour quality from the sample) was polyester based.
Hmmmm....so I researched cushions and fabric again , got some printed samples and went for cotton drill which has just come back today.... and I can't help but feel disappointed with the colour quality....It's not PINGING..infact not even close.
I'm now seeking your advice.
How do you buy your cushions?
Do you look at designs, have a feel then discover it's not cotton and put it back?
Do you only buy cotton based cushion-y type things... or does fabric type even factor in your decision?
Its hard to know whether I've been spoiled by having the comparison of the two..maybe if I'd received the cotton first I'd be happy with colours...the photos actually make the colours look stronger than they are.
(Check my funny model out....she's on day 2 of being off school "ill" , we're on the the day when they start being naughty and jumping about and you know they probably should have gone back today after all! Oh well this gave her something to do for atleast 2 minutes!)
Any advice/opinions would be greatly appreciated x
