Shelly aka Mod Home Ec teacher (here is her first appearance on AT:Chi, followed by this one and this one) just sent us the link to another one of her always great tutorials. She tackled the job of making new cushions for a sweet vintage outdoor seating set. Utilizing colorful fabrics and her impressive skills, she's given new life to vintage pieces - one of the greenest ways to go. Jump below for more:

Finished Chairs

Check out Shelly's full post at Curbly for the details along with links to her other tutorials which will help get the job done.

Thanks, Shelly!
