1  UNITED STATES / Missouri / moving to st. louis on: April 16, 2007 05:01:20 PM
hey craftsters-

My hubby and I are moving to St. Louis sometime this summer and we need your help.  Where is a fun area to live?  He is going to Wash U medical school and it would be nice to be close-ish to that area, mostly because we don't have a car. We are, however, avid supporters of public transportation and bikes.  We're in our late 20s, like live music and drinking beers in the sunshine.  Any help would be much appreciated.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / revamped couch on: July 18, 2006 09:19:11 AM
My husband's grandma gave us this fold-out couch when we moved to Chicago.  It is a great couch, but as you can see from the before--damn ugly!  So I went to the fabric store a while ago and bought this navy linen for a dollar/yard.  It was not my first choice but 1)it was cheap and 2)my best friend and her hubby gave us a rug from South America and the blue matches (we LOVE the rug, by the way).  I finally finished recovering the pillows and it is done!

As for recovering the actual couch--I just sewed different panels to capture the details and hot glue gunned them on.
before...headacheville...


the finished product...I recovered the couch in September and just did the pillows last week.  i HATE the one on the right.  i was over this project and it was hot and well...maybe someday I will redo it.  the other pillow is embroidered circles and french knots.
