I'm not a big sewer AT ALL. But the uses of a sewing machine are plentiful and when Sam found me a sewing machine for my birthday a year and a half ago, I was very very grateful. Since then I've bound a few quilts with it and made some nursing covers to sell. However, all of those projects were really simple and rather boring.
Last week at DI, I found two very classy chairs for $6 a piece. The covers on them were trashed but I just thought I might be able to figure out a way to reupholster them so we picked them up.
We were planning on getting a new living room set for our den but haven't because the room is kind of an awkward shape and finding the right set up for us has been challenging. These chairs are the perfect solution. It gives us the seating we want without all of the space being taken up with a loveseat.
Here is the semi-finished chair. The finishing touches of sewing on the velcro and seaming the edges are all that's left. All major seams and pieces are sewed together....and it ACTUALLY FITS!
I'm rather impressed with myself, I must admit. Now I only have one chair left to do! The goal is to have it done by Saturday for our Open House.....
