I've had the same experience (running out of fabric and having to improvise). It ends up making the piece look designer. You did a great job! The chair looks soooo comfy with that soft fabric too!

Absolutely fantastic!!  Glad you had the confidence to tackle this.....it's really very rewarding (needless to say very time consuming too).  Whenever I've finished upholstering something, I always say to myself that I'll never do that again....but....I always end up doing another one.

Congrats on such a fabulous chair and I agree with other posters about the two fabrics - they are such a great combination.   Cool

Haha, in the last picture the kitty looks like he's about to pounce on you!

Actually I think that was more the look of "Oh crap, she caught me!"

Thanks for all the positive feedback! We had so much fun re-inventing an old friend!....as I sit in it typing this post.....
