I just can't wait to show you this project! I wanted to show you it last week, but I have made a strickt rule for myself, that I cannot post anything until the project is completely finished. I am notorious for starting a project, getting it to a "good enough" point -- you know the point where it looks finished, but you know it isn't completely finished. So, I had to wait until it was completely finished.
I had it almost finished a week ago, but I was 1/2 a yard short of fabric for the bottom of the cushion. This resulted in me searching the internet to find more of this particular fabric and then spending more money on 1 yd (because they didn't sell it in 1/2 yard incriments) of fabric than I have ever, or will ever spend again! I had orginally bought 6 yards @ $6/yard of this fabric when we lived in CA, but didn't know what I was going to use it for. I laid out all the pieces for this, but forgot about cording, therefore coming up 1/2 yard short. Resulting in me paying - -- - honey if you are reading this SKIP OVER THIS NEXT SECTION - -- - $30/yard!!! YIKES! It about killed me! But I was at the point of no return.
When I saw this couch on Craigslist for $40 I could not get my email telling them I wanted it sent fast enough - - I knew it was a perfect candidate for reupholstery! It was a breeze to reupholster (except for that being short on fabric part) and I think it turned out fantastic!
I have a little corner in my kitchen that was just begging for a piece of furniture to be put there. It was the perfect new home for my beautiful new "little couch!" All it needed was a great pillow on it. I've been making lots of pillow lately, so I had lots to choose from!
a coral rectangular lumbar
this great green pillow that I made for a customer
obviously I can't keep this one :)
look at the fun tie detail!!
a little bird lumbar -- I love this design. My friend Kristi and I came up with this embroidery design.
Lots of projects this time! All next week will be the school room re-do! Can't wait to share it with you!!
