It's been easy to sew it, just boring. I mean: gathering 21 meters of tulle, and sewing 24 meters of satin ribbon...! *shudders*
But I have to say that my ribbon sewing has greatly improved after the first 10 meters...
It's a three tiers, two layers one. And it's incredibly puffy! I'm already loving it. Even if for a while my sewing really looked like wedding cake.
But now, it's time to tackle the re-upholstering of an old armchair.
I'll be following this tutorial, seems very well written and with plenty of pics:
First time re-upholstering for me, so... wish me good luck! :)
“damn .. I also have an armchair that I schould reupholdster too for years ... I wish you all the luck and courage, this is not easy task ;)”
Thanks! For now it's been boring - all the "take out the rusty nails without damaging the fabric because you'll use that as pattern" part. But I found out that it's 60 years old. How cool is that!
And found a couple of old coins inside it, from before the Euro era.
>> Laura Arjona:
I just managed, for now, to take the bottoms up from trousers.
I was thinking about sewing a thin cushion to put on top of a trunk so we can sit there, but I just noticed that I can buy two cheap chair covers and done... so I feel lazy.
Re-upholstering... it's totally out of scope for me!”
Eheh, sometimes I'm lazy as well. But the more I sew the more I find out that it makes me happy, truly happy, so I just enjoy it and do all kinds of crazy projects :).
