Every time I open the doors in my mending studio it is going to be coming up roses. It has turned out just like I imagined. Vintage, colorful, curvy and comfortable. My fingers are numb from ruching and sewing but I am not complaining because I am going to be sitting in a garden whenever I want! This is my garden of Wilunder roses in the French countryside.
The paint does so much for the lines of the chair. You can see every bend and turn. It doesn't hurt that there are miles of that red gingham ruching to show them off. Who knew it would take that much?
Perfect staple placement and very particular trim glue make this worth every ache and pain. I have estimated about 21 hours from start to finish. I would do it again in a minute. Can you just imagine a table with different chairs around it all covered in tablecloths?
You have to smile when you see this!
It is just unexpected...
Happily placed under a tray of roses in the mending studio. I wish you all could see how sweet it turned out. It is comfortable too. I had such a tiny pile of scraps left over probably less than a cup full. Not enough for a pillow. That will have to come from something else.
What can I get my needle in now?
