Last week I dropped of a sectional to my cute client that was in need of a solution for her sectional that has been overruled by large sheets that protect it from the dogs and cats. Her sectional is pretty perfect as is.. see.
Super clean lines with no removable cushions.. but you see, if only life were that simple.. They have 2 large dogs and a very frisky cat that claim ownership of this sectional.. hence the need for this:
We kept the lines of the slipcover the same as the couch. Since there were no removable cushions I dropped the seat of the sectional to give it the appearance of a cushion. I top stitched all of the seams so that the material would lay better. It was a beast to work with. Try moving and sewing 30lbs of fabric pinned together all at once! I have battle scars from pins to prove it.. But, I made it thru and I am super happy with how it turned out and so was my client!
It was hard to get a good pic since there was a monsoon that hit and stole all my sunlight right as I walked in the door..
I also just finished up a slew of bench cushions and pillows for a client of mine who has a second home in Midway. We switched out the existing fabric, added some new foam and batting to plump things back up and just in time for the wedding they are hosting there this weekend!
I also worked on a ton of little side jobs last week. I swear it was "I just need a few pillows made" week and of course I have a hard time saying no.. See no pity, I did it to myself! And of course, there were no photos taken.. This week I am working on 8 more massive bench cushion, pillows and 4 super cute ottomans as well as 2 darling little swivel rockers that are going to be amazing! These are for 2 different clients and the fabrics they have chosen are so much fun! And one of them may or may not have a home in this years parade.... Um.. So ya, there is NOT enough time in the day!!
My June schedule is filling up fast and I am only working till the 20th of July (I'll be back to work around the 12th of August), so If you want to board this crazy train, you better get your ticket now!!
