Dressing Up a Folding Chair
The chair that I use at my sewing machine is a typical folding chair. It's kind of nice as far as folding chairs go, but it's not pretty. For a year now, I've been trying to get to doing this project but never got to it. This weekend was the time.
I used the same fabric I used for the inner lining of the window treatments I made last year. I had enough left-over, still like the fabric and it matches the rest of my room. As you can see, my Misty-kitty keeps me company at the machine! She keeps me the same kind of company at the computer. She has no idea she's in the way. I don't tell her, either... don't want to hurt her feelings...
Another view of the completed project. I really like it. I learned a lot, too. I used the tuturial from Creative Little Daisy on how to make the bias binding and cording. Great instructions that even I didn't mess up. I also used the directions from Romantic Home Sewing by Christina Strutt. Wonderful instructions in there, too. I have a few projects to show this week. I'm trying to do some finish up work on projects that just need a bit more work as I plan on doing a Spring Top Week in April. I'll give you more details on that tomorrow.
