New Year Goal #1 - CHECK!
Ok so it was a New Year Goal from Last year... or maybe two years ago but so what -- it's done!
You may...or may not recall the loooovely chair I got for free from my poor old neighbour. Although the cover was funky, it was dirty and torn; and really didn't match anything we had, so it was my goal to recover it. Well I hummed and hawed and stressed about it. I got some material to cover it and cut it up and stressed some more. But finally last week I took the plunge and got to work.
I decided to go with a plain beige cover (instead of reupolstering it). It has a bit of texture which is nice, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money for two reasons: a) this was my first time sewing a chair cover, so if I messed up, I wouldn't be that disappointed (who am I kidding, I'd be crying in the corner...), and b) because my cat has turned this chair into a scratching post so if he decides to scratch it now (so help him....) I didn't end spending a lot of money on the material. Plus I can punch it up with some fun pillows (recognize this pillow???).
Anyway I'm VERY happy to get this done and just in time for C's baby shower this weekend. Ooop just noticed I forgot to cut some threads!
