Last week when I was searching around on Pinterest I came across the inspiration to fill my saggy lounge cushions! They have annoyed me for so long and obviously I was being very blonde and hadn’t thought to fill them up again…. derrrr!! So a trip to Spotlight was in order on Sunday. Now you have no idea how happy this 5 minute project made me!!!! 😉
So they were pretty flat weren’t they? With a bow in the middle. I love these lounges. The are a very good large size (4 seaters) and a dark charcoal (or sometimes they look navy). They just needed a new fresh look.
I bought 2 big bags (1kg each) of hobby filly (or polyester fill) from Spotlight. They were $13 a bag.
It depends on your lounge and if you can insert the fill into the actual lining that would be better, but I couldn’t unless I wanted to unpick the white fill and re-sew (who am I kidding! I was too impatient for that!). So I stuffed it as evenly as I could in the top of the cushion (the zipper part is on the bottom obviously). I had to push it around so it wasn’t going to end up with lumps…
Now look! They are high and proud again! I didn’t end up using the 2 full bags of fill, but have saved the rest to see if the cushions settle in the next few days and need another top up. I even stuffed some of the throw cushions so they look plump and lush.
It may have been a tiny project, but I am so happy! 😉
