How to Sew Bench Cushions With Piping
The fireplace in our den has a long hearth with built in shelving on one side. When we bought our house, I knew that I wanted to make that area into a seating area to add more character to the space (and to hide our router!). I Chose this fabric from fabric.com, because the basket weave fabric had a lot of texture, and looked neutral, but it also had some dark blue hues that matched the color of our built ins.

This was a project that I did prior to blogging, so I did not take step by step photos to share with you all. I made three separate square cushions, instead of one long seat, in case someone wanted to grab a cushion and move it closer to the fire when the fire is going.
