I put my mom to work. Since I did not have my machines, we used her tried and true Bernina (its older than me!) and a neighbors quilting machine. It took a little longer but we powered thru it! While I cut the fabric I had her make piping. My mom also wanted to have the option of changing the up the look of the settee with another cushion cover. We kept the lines of the original settee and left of the skirt. My mom was soo worried that I would not be able to slipcover the settee because it had a scalloped back. No faith! It just made the reveal that much better. It took a little longer to sew only because I was working with a regular sewing machine. Its no industrial machine, but it will get the job done. Eventually.. Here is the after.
So my mom freaked out! Its amazing what a little fabric can do! We did the body a small grey cream leaf print and the piping in a grey and cream stripe. She had me to the cushion in the stripe as well. And the top, she was soo worried about it looking funny. It turned out better than she could have ever imagined! Here its is with the pillow i MADE her make..
Not too shabby! Plus I got to hear my mom swear a lot while making them. Oh how I love her! I mentioned that she wanted to have the option to change it up so I made a cushion that was double sided. One side has the same print as the body and the other has an awesome geometric print. She scored 3 looks for 1 chair!
I am still working on drumming up work around St. Geezey, but I have been getting a lot of calls from clients up "North". I am planning a trip up that way over the weekend of the 17th, so if you have something you want done contact me so I can get you on my schedule for a fitting. In the meantime I'll be finishing up a few more projects around the house for myself! So check back soon! And, I am beyond excited that out kitchen back splash is finally getting installed today!!! Like as I am typing. Its gonna be amazballs!
