Good Morning and Happy Friday! 1. I have a new slipcover project to quickly share. Remember this chair?
Well, my friend has a couple of rocking chairs from her home county of Honduras that she wanted seat covers for.
She wanted them in a similar style, so we had just enough fabric to do two of these...
Look at the beautiful hand-carving on that chair! And, of course there had to be pleats :)
And I should have gotten a better picture, but here you can see some of the beautiful art from her home country that graces this room...
And the best part of this kind of delivery? The chance to visit over a cup of delicious coffee :)
2. Another client sent me this picture of her chair in its home...
Perfect in that spot!
3. Another project follow-up... These cushions have found their home in a church nursery :)
4. Did you know how you can revive tired foam cushions? With steam! Just run a steamer over the foam and it will pop right back into shape (well, close).
See the part on the right that is bigger/puffier? Yep, the steam did that (y'all probably knew this trick, but this was my first real opportunity to try it). My current project required a lot of steam!
5. And my new sewing machine and I have had our differences this week. We are working things out, and will try again next week. Today is fabric cutting day - hopefully the scissors and I get along :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
