Hello there!

After being really tired of everything involving a staplegun for a few months, the fever got me again.

This old, beaten up, white sofa was full of stains and scratched open by multiple cats (or maybe one or to tigers, who knows Cheesy ) but I had a vision.

It was my first upholstery where I had to actually sew parts together before stapling, but it still turned out pretty cool.
I even had to make my own binding, using bias strips and laundry line  Grin






I'd love to hear what you think! Thanks for looking.

Having the black contrast in there really makes it something else. You did a lovely job.
