This is a bench cushion I sewed for my Aunt and Uncle's little nook in their dining room. They provided me with the materials, and with a little coaching from my dad (because this was my first time handling piping) I think I totally pulled it off. The whole shell is lined with iron-in interfacing, and there's a long zipper along the back to make it easier for washing, or to change it should they redecorate. You'll probably notice from the pictures that the cushion is shorter than the actual bench space, that was planned, they want to put some small shelves on either side.
Now to make the decorative pillows! Enjoy!
