DIY Alfresco Outdoor Room

Hi this is Robin, a member of the creative team over at Fairfield, the makers of the Original Poly-fil® brand fiber fill, Soft Touch® pillows and your favorite selection of interfacing and battings. Our designers have been busy over the past few months preparing for our new “Spaces” design initiative. This program was designed to showcase our products, our partners’ products and our talented designers, while also inspiring you to create your own comfortable spaces using some of these products. This program encourages you to “Get Comfortable” with Fairfield – inside or outside, by creating a space of your own to relax and entertain alfresco style, all summer long.


The collection of projects from Fairfield and friends includes DIY Reversible Comfy Cushions, oversized denim Meadow Cushions, Khir Pillows, Alfresco Tassel Cover, Journey Pillows, Coiled Woolen Basket and much more!

We used many different fabrics from Shannon Fabrics, such as Turkish Waffle, Embrace™ Double Gauze Solids, and Faux Fur.

We also incorporated a few notions from our friends at Dritz®, Coats® and more--to give the projects a one-of-a-kind unique look.
