Got the hose all woven in and painted for both chairs and the cushion for one cut.
I also ran a 5k today because it was local and was not raining. Didn’t do too badly for first race of the year.
Update and more pictures;
For those who asked, the chair does get a cover! I got a beach towel for $7 and it was huge enough to cover the entire chair. I decided to make my seat cushion backless to accommodate the odd shape of the seat, and, to cut down on water trapping in the cushion. I sewed a tube around the edge and put a ribbon through and cinched it tight. For me, the towel wrapped all around the edges and about an inch onto the bottom, the tube added about a half inch more. It is not a pillow fight pillow but does ok sitting still on a chair.
I took the remainder of the towel, serged the raw edge, sewed it to the right width ** leaving the extra on either side to be padding **. Added a loop to the back and an elastic tie to the front and filled it with all the offcuts of my pool noodles from the seat.
Overall I like the look and more importantly it feels pretty good to sit on 🙂
