I suddenly felt the urge to replace these dated IKEA-cushion covers. If I remember correctly, John and I bought these about 10 (!) years ago, shortly after we got married. I think, everybody will agree with me, it was time to get rid of them.
When the Lady cut the fabric for me, she was very generous and actually cut about 39 inches, instead of 36. Lucky me! Because, after pre-washing the fabric it turned out that I ended up with exactly 36 inches: Shrinkfactor of over 8%?! Anyway, it was still enough fabric to cover the two pillows with zipper centered in back (I reused the zippers from the old covers!) and I have enough left over to make a cute fabric basket later on.
PS: Now, this old couch just HAS to go.......
