My fiance’s brother and his wife were married on a small island in Thailand. Everything was beautiful – the views, the weather and especially the bride!
There was a store on the island that sold beautiful sarongs made from printed Indonesian batik designs. After a very long time browsing (I am a painfully slow decision maker) I decided on this bright pink and purple one. I wasn’t sure at the time whether I’d keep it to wear as a sarong or use the fabric to make something else.
That afternoon my fiance and I went to a fantastic little cafe that made the most delicious coconut and lime smoothies you could imagine! We ended up spending the next three afternoons here, escaping the heat by drinking smoothies and playing boardgames. One afternoon, mid-smoothie, I decided what to do with my new fabric. All the napkins and cushions in the cafe were made from fabric similar to that I had just bought. I loved how the bright colours stood out against the wooden furniture and decided I had to have some cushions just like this in my own home.
So here they are – my Thailand-cafe-inspired-outdoor-furniture cushions!
