06 Sep dark red upholstery fabric
Some of it’s possible you’ll remember that a few months ago, I discussed that I wanted to get a brand new laptop so I might blog more without having to trek all the way in which all the way down to the basement to work on the desktop. I additionally wanted one thing I could take with me to Mother & Dad’s in the course of the week once i stay on the market to work. I faithfully saved up my sewing money, and the time lastly got here. On Friday, I got myself a brand new-to-me MacBook Pro. It’s solely a 12 months outdated, is loaded with a bunch of extra packages, and it cost me most likely half as a lot as a model new one with all the identical stuff. At present is my first day taking part in round with it, and I assumed I would whip up an upholstery post that I’ve had sitting around waiting to be written about.
Again in August or September, we received to do a easy wingback chair. We love the traditional style of these chairs. Dad is still looking to find an old one to get well and put in his residing room.
The development of this job is fairly primary. If you are able to do a wingback, you can do a sofa, or nearly any fundamental furnishings. Step one is to take it apart. Can I just say that I really like this picture?
We did not take any footage of the “slicing, sewing, and placing it again collectively” stuff. Here Dad is already putting the dust cloth on the bottom, which is often the final step.
I wasn’t too thrilled to have to work with beige fabric (yawn), however that’s the best way it goes. You’ve to give the shopper what they need. I like working on the projects that have actually gorgeous colours, or completely funky prints. Not less than this beige was sturdy, good quality, and simple to work with.
I really like this image. As I was taking the photographs, I had trouble seeing the image within the show, so I made Dad pose again, and in some way, he thought I was asking him to maneuver closer to the chair? In any case, this picture is hilarious. We have now a lot fun.
And lastly, right here is a pleasant angled shot of the chair. Easy and elegant.
I hope you loved visiting the upholstery shop with me! Hopefully soon I could have some new garments to post. I have not had a lot time to sew these days. I blog about nearly every part I make, so if I’m not blogging, it usually means I’m not sewing! 🙁 I’ve a pair cute issues developing, so wish me luck and possibly I can finish them by subsequent weekend!
