Straight out of the sweatshop- a new cushion. Actually more of an icebox than a sweatshop. The sooner I can train my boy to operate a sewing machine, the faster you’ll get your piped products.
I’ll be doing a cocktail chair in a variant of this in the New Year. *hops from foot to foot*
Uh Oh. It’s that time of year. I’ve gone a bit mental with the piping foot and spoonflower leftovers. If you are the last person left in the UK who doesn’t have enough cushions in your life, well, I think I’ve just SAVED YOUR LIFE AND THE LIFE OF YOUR POOR BOTTOM/LOWER BACK. No need to thank me. Just press the buy-it-now button and improve the quality of your loafing by about 80%.
Made in Bristol, 100% Tickety-Boo.
Another re-cover job for the dental chair couple. This piece of repro furniture was very Dangerous Liasons so I made sure to thoroughly scotchguard it so any dropped profiteroles (or worse) came off nice and easy. The paisley they chose looked properly decadent. I got to try out my double-piping foot, play with a glue-gun, learnt a lot and now affix double piping to anything I can get my hands on. It looks pretty good on furniture. Not so good glued to fingers, plates, floorboards, small boys…
OK. So these clients had an antique dental chair that needed re-covering. Vinyl? Leather? Something wipe-clean to sponge the blood off? Well, they chose raised polka dots. The customer IS ALWAYS RIGHT. You know what? They WERE right. Properly potty, or should that be dotty? It’s one of the things I like upholstery- how switcheroo-ing a fabric can slap a piece of furniture back into life.
Petite nursery chair festooned in birdhouse fabric by troismiettes on spoonflower (http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/5299), finished off with round-headed tacks. To be honest, I’d be happy if I never had to look at another round-headed tack again in my life, so this chair has to go.
Get mommy a cocktail.
This cutie-pie will be up for sale as soon as it stops raining and I can get some proper pictures up. That’ll be sometime in August 2013 then…
