I spent HOURS this week trying to cover the arm of my chair with fabric AND for it to look good. HOURS and HOURS!
It wasn’t until Monday that I realised there was a trick to it, but even then I struggled to get it to look as good (or even vaguely as good) as the arm my upholstery tutor did.
Yesterday, chair class day, my tutor made some quite minor tweaks and it all looked good – you just can’t beat experience when it comes to practical skills can you? Thanks Sue 🙂
The chair is on its way – and very exciting it is too after recent frustrations. I’ve started putting the stud trim around the legs…
Looks good doesn’t it?
Three weeks to go and the goal is in sight 🙂 – just wondering about another project now!
With the help of DaisyBelleCrafts (a self confessed lover of all things Tilda 🙂 ) I’ve decided to make a Tilda-inspired creature with my new fabric.
The pieces are cut out and waiting in the wings.
They are at the back of a lengthy queue of crafty things on my ‘to do’ list – but I think they may well jump to the front 😉
Until next time,
