Hello friends, I hope your week has been a good one so far. Mine has been filled with ...
.Painters canvas drop cloths...lot's of them. If fear the Queens of Slipcovers have created a monster. I find it difficult to go into someones home now and not envision the furniture slipcovered.
My poor husband freaks out when he sees me looking at our furniture with that 'look' in my eyes.
It is a slipcover sickness.
I moved my machine downstairs to be close to my furniture (and the coffee) and the madness began!
|pink frame is my attempt to make this chair look good|
So this is my next guinea pig. We bought two of these velour wingbacks when we were newlyweds (36 years) back in our Houston days. Hubby was a Houston Police Officer back then.
See that little bullet hole sized patch in the lower corner of the back....yeah that one. Well it's bullet hole sized because it is a bullet hole.
It's a long story, but you will happy to know that no one was hurt and no, it was not my hubby who put it there.
I have wanted to cover this chair for
more years than I care to count.
so after much fitting, pinning and sewing, I now present my very first WINGBACK SLIPCOVER!
She looks like a a new chair, doesn't she?
This piping stuff is really very easy, I don't know why I have been scared of it. If you are feeling nervous about the piping...don't be. It is easy.
I did simple , but elegant pleats on the skirt and how about her back.
I got the grograin ribbon idea from Miss Mustard Seed. Makes her look like a princess ;->
What do you think...do you like the bows?
I created this soft pillow using an old holiday pillow as the form some vintage looking remnants and black ball fringe. Ladies...don't throw out those old worn Christmas pillows!! Recover them.
I think she looks great on my new chair.
So I guess I'm happily addicted and if this is wrong, I don't want to be right!
I'll be joining a few friends this week and sharing my post.
I think I miss that little bullet hole...just a little.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
