I figured I would post sewing or knitting projects and the like as I completed them but I am way behind. Actually, I am way behind in blogging in general! I have 3 drafted posts that I haven’t touched in weeks. So, in the meantime here are a few images of some of the sewing projects I have worked on lately. Some of them date back to Christmas time but I don’t think I ever posted them on the blog!
For Christmas I made a purse for my daughter (only my 2nd project-no pattern!)
I wanted to buy a kid-sized chair that my daughter could sit in..particularly when we are in the living room. I had intentions of making a cushion for the seat but decided to modify and cover a ready-made pad from Ikea instead. As you will see below. I cut down the pad to fit, measured and made the cover, and put it all together. The great thing about the pre-made pad is that it came with Velcro straps that attach to the back legs!
I took a break from my sewing machine for a much needed, no-sew household project! My 5-year old dining room chairs were looking very sad and I had been in search of some cheap upholstery fabric. Finally one day I found some great 50% off fabric and get to stapling away! I did not remove the old fabric; I stapled the new fabric on top of the old. This was super easy and made a huge difference visually.
