Parsons Festival Cushion Covers

I submitted a proposal for the Parsons Festival to design and sew covers for the unsightly giant grey circle couches in the lobby of Parsons 2 West 13th st. It was approved and Parsons is going to reimburse me for my materials cost. This was a super fun installation project and also a long process. I had to go in with my handy dandy tape measure and meticulously measure the couches to figure out what size to make the covers and how to design them accordingly. I sketched the designs, colored them digitally, and ordered the fabric. When I got the fabric I cut all of the big pieces up into giant 53" circles and all of the side pieces into strips. I sewed all of the side pieces together and sewed the tag pockets on the sides as well. Next I sewed the top circle to the sides and elastic onto the bottom for a snug fit.

If you're in the area, drop by the 2 west 13th st lobby and have a look!!!
