Life just started, it seems, so let's figure it out together.

I thought it was smart! March 26, 2010

I just can’t wait any longer to share my latest project!

In my family, we have a table and 6 matching chairs that have made the rounds, and each one has recovered the chairs to make them her own. Well, about a year ago, I found my turn with this beautiful set, but couldn’t quite decide what I wanted for the new cushions. Until…..a few weeks ago, I found what I wanted! I’m in love with this fabric, and I found it at Hobby Lobby (a store I frequent). Here’s the finished product.


Well, of course, there was leftover material that must be used, right?

In the meantime, my daughter has gotten to the point that we needed a highchair. My parents generously offered my old highchair for her use. It is a wonderful old fashioned wooden chair with wooden tray. When I say wonderful, I mean better than wonderful…..magnificent!


The highchair needs a cushion too….and I have leftover material from the kitchen chairs!!!! Woo Hoo….. After racking my brain (I’m new to sewing), I decide to just start drawing and cutting and hopefully it’ll work out. In the end, what I made was basically 2 slightly stuffed pillows with ribbons for tying onto the chair. I am very proud of it, and I hope that it inspires you to make something that you’ll be just as proud of.

So i’ve been playing this weekend!



Now I’m going to pull out my brand new sewing machine and see what I can do with it…..I’m nervous, b/c I’ve never really sewed anything!
