I think the ruffles are awesome!

Personally, though, I think it would look better with a regular open and close top, without the flap.  I think that interrupts the great design the ruffles essentially make.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Quick question from a newbie on: August 13, 2008 01:01:06 AM
I'm hoping some of you fabulous skilled sewers can help me with my question.  I have very (very very) little sewing experience, but whatever.  The only way to learn is to try.

So I've decided I want to make this rough patchwork thingamajig.  But I want one of those raised fabric/cord type seams between all the various patches.  In other words, I don't want perfect little side by side patches - I want this raised line, with visible stitching.
Here is a rough example of what I'm talking about:

You see that orange line running between all the patches?  That is what I want.

So how do I do that?  My best guess is that the patches are all sewn together (by machine or hand, it doesn't matter).  Then this orange cord(?) is handstitched on top.  But I feel I may be completely wrong.  Which is why I'm asking some experts for help, lol!

Thank you!  I haven't seen those, so I'll keep an eye out.

I would prefer one giant piece of corkboard, so it will have a cleaner look, but the tiles may end being my only option.

I have a frame I want to use to make a corkboard for my room.  But I have no idea where to buy corkboard that I can cut to fit in the oval shaped frame.  I thought it would be easy to find, yet I don't seem to see it anywhere.

Any suggestions?

Gorgeous bed!!!
!!!!! BINGO! That's where I first got it from too! That was the best show ever. I'm so glad you had the same experience with it as I did! Also, this proves that I didn't just make the whole show up, because I've never been able to find out what the name of that show was or anything else. I would love to watch that show again.
LOL  I loved that show too.

Someone posted a huge batch of the episodes (maybe all of them?) on YouTube, if you want to relive the glory.

What you do with it all depends on your style and the style of the rest of your furniture.
If you plan on keeping it traditional looking, then I would not restain the wood.  If you want to go for more of a modern look on a classic shape, then I would do a bright solid or mod pattern fabric and paint the wood white.  If you want to go for funky, I would go for a mix of bright solids with gilded wood.

Personally, since I lean far far to the side of funky, I am really jonesing after the sort of look this company does right now:
I would imagine that in order to accomplish it, you sew together your "quilt" of fabrics first, before upholstering the sofa with it.  But I really don't know - upholstery has always been far too daunting a task for me, which I've always left to the professionals.  I do remember, however, that someone here reupholstered a sofa a while back, and it was her very first time doing upholstery, and the results were phenomenal.  So you may want to do a board search for that - perhaps she gave some tips.

The comments on Martha Stewart's post mention this site for buying the nylon chiffon.

Assuming that this is the correct fabric being called for, it is $2.85 a yard, so comparable to the price of the poly.  Shipping is on the pricey side, at around $7.50,  but that's $7.50 for the entire order.

Love them!

They reminded of the ones Annie Leibowitz shot for Vogue a few year back.
