I've been meaning to cover these ratty old sofa cushions for a while. Apparently, at some point in the 90's, I thought this checker-y pattern was great. I came to loath it so much, I gave the entire accompanying chaise away.

This is a simple, envelope style bag I made for the school's take home library program. They provided the pattern and original fabric. I couldn't stomach the fabric though, so I got this cute, neutral pattern but colorful print from Ikea. I'm so bummed, they won't be carrying fabric by the yard in the store anymore. I would have gotten more, had I known this at the time.
There were many remarks that came to mind as I thought of how to explain to the school what happened to the fabric they gave me.
"I felt the faded brown-toned roses pattern would hinder the children's ability to read".
"I thought this program was supposed to encourage, not deter children from reading".
And, my favorite --
"The fabric was accidentally burned in a fire".
