I love to sew!! I really do! It's been so long since I could drop everything and just play in my sewing room and I'm relieved to find that I still get so much satisfaction out of it. I made myself the cutest (seriously, crazy cute) pajamas from a sheet and now I'm finally re-covering my little chair. I've had good intentions about this chair for a couple of years and it has turned into a cat scratching post which really makes me cranky. I received this chair at the same time I got this dresser from my parents rental (tenants left it all behind, lucky me). So it's been neglected for 3 years. Look at how sad it is!
I was so inspired by my sheet pajamas (I'll try to get pictures because they are seriously cute!) that when I saw this Scotty dog sheet set at Ross for only 15.00 (twin set, Tommy Hilfiger) I knew it would be perfectly cute. I think the size and shape of the chair lends itself to "cuteness" so I didn't even try to do anything remotely sophisticated. It's staying in my sewing area so I want something that makes me happy when I look at it.
So this is what I'm up too. I'm going very slow and trying to be somewhat meticulous since it has some interesting curves. So far I'm pretty tickled with it. I have a very cute ruffle planned and I think this chair is going to look like a piece of candy when I'm done!
It's still over 100 degrees here but next week is looking very nice so I may actually step outside for a look around. Meanwhile, back to my project! Then on to Christmas sewing (anyone started already??)! Have a great rest of the week!
