These two chairs belonged to my husband's grandmother. She purchased them with green stamps, how cool is that. If you don't remember green stamps, take a look at Carrie's post HERE , complete with retro catalog pictures, fun stuff.
I used this better then burlap looking fabric from Walmart (the b*stards), better because it doesn't feel like burlap. There is some really pretty things being done with burlap these days. Just check out Robelyn's, Red Neck Chic post HERE . She makes awesome purses with it added, purses I love.
Thread sketched some birds. Thanks to Clutterpunk's site here. Then made piping using twice as much material as cording. I gathered the fabric till it ruffled, fun huh? Don't they look like a pair of Debutants at their coming out party?
My camera is acting funny and I have trouble enough getting interior shots. You'll just have to believe me when I say they turned out nice.
It's bittersweet being finished, I've stalled as long as I can and need to get out and apply for a job. Since I live in a rural area, my options are walmart, walmart and oh yeah, walmart (the bastards). Don't get me wrong I'm grateful for the time I've been able to stay at home. I know there are people not as fortunate as myself and I'm not scared of hard work. I just wish I had more options available. You think those soul sucking, community killing, drone boxes care whether I'm creative.LOL I think not, make sure you hang those plastic shoes in a straight line. Like my outlook and cheery disposition? I'm sure they will too. I'll probably be hired as a door greeter right on the spot. The bastards.
