part one

Poor pictures but pictures at least

In the beginning there was a rather outdated 1980's floral shade

trim was removed and then the stitch n rip came out to unpick the seams to make a pattern for the new covering

Material was cut and no I didn't do the sensible thing of making a trial one first

and this is where it is at the moment, sat on my ironing board
my sewing machine came home this morning and Im hoping to get a chance to start the actual making of it this week

Im also a tad scared as it is looking tricky and Im worried a degree of precision might be needed!


  1. Can't wait to see it! I'd be trembling too! :)

  2. Looking forward to seeing the finished article with a golden glow showing thru' that pretty material. Lovely!
    So pleased you had a great Fair at MK. Considering it is only about 20 mins by train from here I haven't been there for ages. My support worker told me there's a TKMaxx there now! (Yes, it's been that long!).
    Z xx

  3. I only realised TKMaxx were there this September...usually too busy to get the chance to look around the real shops. I tend to spend my loo breaks trying not to spend money on the other stalls!
