New Life into This Old Couch

This couch of mine is about 10 years old and looked like new until my cracker crunching, juice spilling, sticky fingered child came into my world. I kept up with it for a long time and then it got away from me. So thanks to Mom, she helped me recover the seat cushions and redo the throw pillows. It looks so great now and nice and clean.
I found this fabric at a local fabric store and it was marked down 60%. After the sale price it was only $6.00/yard. Wahoo!! It is very soft and was easy to work with.
Mom even took the left over fabric from my window treatments and covered some of the other pillows. I have been wanting to do that for the last year now, but have not gotten to it. Yeah, Mom. Thanks for the time you put in. I love it and I love you!!!!
