So, I decided to mix and match a few fabrics from my stash, including this local fabric that I picked up in Hawaii back in March. I'm kind of a sucker for anything indigo and I just loved the faux needlework look of it all. I actually used the backside of the fabric because of the unique discoloration and irregularities in the dye. It looked a bit more handmade.
Oasis Canvas. It's organic cotton, and just so lovely to work with! Not to mention that the two blues, worked so well together for the bodice. I just love it! The Oasis Canvas has just enough stiffness to give it some body, but is so soft and perfect for clothing. I think the three of them look just great together.
The second project I tackled as of late was a barstool cover makeover......a much needed one! These things were just awful. I probably shouldn't post this because they are just that bad. ha!
These are the before pics of the stools, in need of some love and attention. So, I took them apart, reused the original cushion, and recovered it with my coffee fabric.
It was actually quite easy to do! I just traced the cushion, and added about three or four inches to the circumference of the circle on all sides. Then, it was basically as easy as making a little shower cap! I just sewed in the elastic, pinned the fabric to the 4 spots on top with some embroidery floss, and Voila!
