Ha! I did it!!! - - I know it only says 199 projects, but number 20o is already done and I will be posting it tomorrow!!! I thought it would be fitting to have just one more re-upholstery project on here before Handsome Hubby’s return. With the completion of this re-upholstered bench, I have a final count of 24 re-upholstery projects during this deployment - - wow!
This was just a simple, curved arm bench, in desperate need of a fabric facelift! The owner of this bench, loves to throw in a little animal print in every room in her house. She is in the process of decorating her master bedroom and decided that a little cheetah was just what her bench and her bedroom needed!
The second project for today is just a simple re-fashioning of one of my shirts. I love this shirt, but it was just a little too tight for comfort. I found myself wanting to wear it, but always choosing to not wear it because I knew I would be uncomfortable in it. So, I decided to re-work it and let it be a super cute shirt for Charise.
All I simply had to do was take in the side seams by about 2” on each side, which also made the arm holes her size. Then I simply stitched together half way up the neck opening so it’s not showing off too much!! Charise is super excited that she has a shirt that Mommy used to wear and I’m happy that my cute shirt will now get to be worn again!
Oh, by the way, did you notice the calendar in the picture above?
Here let me show you again….see those arrows?
What, you say you can’t see it well enough to see them? Look closer!
Yup, it says we are only 1 day away from Daddy/Handsome Hubby leaving for home!!!!
