Upholstery project :: Swimming in Flowers

Finished another chair today, by far the most labor intensive project I've tackled so far. Not perfect, but I'm gaining more and more confidence with each try.

The fabric is a neutral green and the stitched fish are a bluish pink. The colors compliment each other much better then the photos show.

I turned the print on its side to make room for sewing on the fish and the delphiniums and flowers gave the nice impression of  aquatic plants.

A far cry from the homely darlin' I dragged home from goodwill.
Homely, but good bones.

Taking a seat and relaxing today ;0)

You did a fantastic job. The cording on the cushion as so much to it. Looks amazing.

While reading this I kept thinking of that odd song "I love to go swimmin' with bowlegged wimmen'". I know...crazy right?
Girl, you are an artist and I envy your talent.

That chair is just wonderful! I think the pink fish absolutely gives it the perfect touch.... Love the fabric, and love the way you managed to give that little old chair a new home, and a fabulous new look!

Okay - I'm not kidding... I'm going to box up a crazy amount of fabric and send it to you so you can stitch cool, fun things on it all - then I can make some purses. LOLOL

LOVE the chair!!! Oh, and the fish! HA!
