I wanted to try my hand at slip covers, so the children chairs seemed like a good place to start. I used the method of pinning in place, marking and trimming. First, I used newspaper to make a pattern of the main pieces I needed. This was my first slip so I used muslin to make a fabric pattern for my toile (isn't it pretty?). Do not pay any attention to the green legs on the chair, both chairs and table will be painted in a light taupe. Remember, I am the "horse before the cart" kind of girl. What do you think? I am satisfied with this one, now I will sew the other. I can't wait for the girls (Bella and Ava) to see it.
Here is a lampshade embellishment I really like, there will be a pair of these. Love the ruffled bias tape, easy and fast on the machine...need to work on getting it perfectly centered, but, I think I have it worked it out. It is attached with SOBO fabric glue, tacky and I did not have to hold it on, it grabs right away...love that. Roses attached this way also.
This is a fish fossil that I bought from MW Nature's Antiquities, an Etsy shop you must visit! Mr B. wants to hang it here, above the stove. I think he is right, it looks amazing against the tile and adds a nice touch. We are still figuring out how to hang it, maybe epoxy a hanger on the back of the fossil and use a 3M removable hanger on the tile?
