Viewed from the room adjacent to this patio I was wishing for pillows that pulled through some of the colors in the room, red, for instance. So I went on a hunt, first looking at purchasing outdoor pillow covers, but after investing in the furniture the price tag for that was too high. Then I thought I should sew the covers myself since several fabric stores carry outdoor fabrics. At about $29/yard I thought I would save about half. But then, I called one of my favorite fabric stores, HomeFabrics, and learned they too carry outdoor fabrics so I headed over there to check them out. I was a bit disappointed because most of the selection was not at all what I had in mind, but then I found the perfect fabric misplaced in the canvas area--this beautiful warm solid red! Unbelievably, it was $3.99/yard!!! I bought three yards for six pillows, so for about $12 I have what I think are the perfect throw pillows for our patio furniture.
