As I was admiring your work, I was thinking to myself "Wow, I want one!" I really love this skirt and think you have done an AMAZING job! You are always going to have someone with a negative attitude. It's really important to not let it discourage you! Beautiful work and congratulations on the stamina, goodness knows I couldn't have done it!

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.....

This is a great outfit! And you have the perfect little model too Wink My 6 year old would LOVE something like this. I have never sewn with a pattern however and am more intimidated by that than I can explain. I need to start experimenting more....

About 4 years ago my sister showed up on my doorstep with two of the most ugly, yet comfortable chairs. They got dubbed the "Death Chairs" because I would commonly sit in one and fall asleep so soundly that no one could wake me up. I bought fabric to recover them however being a busy single mom I really didn't have the time to take on such a project. So, 1 queen size fitted sheet with a couple holes compliments of the cats became the temporary cover. One chair eventually got sent to Goodwill but because of the hole in the arm and the cigarette burn in the seat cushion, this chair had to stay behind. Now I am so glad it did!


I got to this point in the reupholstering process when I found out that I hadn't bought enough fabric (3 years ago) to cover the whole thing. So, we hopped in the car and went for a drive to 5 (yes 5!) different places only to discover that no one has ever seen this fabric before. Ok, time to improvise...

We ended up using the leopard print fabric to cover the two lower sides and the back of the chair. That fabric was originally intended for the cushion only but I think that it really helped to tie the whole thing together.

And now for the action shot!

So, keep in mind that I have only been sewing for 6 months and I have never reupholstered anything before, what do you think?
