sew good: Von Trapp DIY
I recently recovered cushions for a beloved chair of my parents. I even managed to do so sans buttons, zipper or Velcro- just an envelope covering. I still had to do basic math and line up a textured line patterns, and strangely my rotary knife wouldn't cut through the fabric. So nice to knock them out in under 2 hours though. I have to say I'm pretty pleased with them.
This is the chair I used that awesome topographic fabric to make some throw cushions for my parents new coastal home. To me it's very nautical with out screaming "I'm on a boat!"
Hope you like...funny you should know the fabric for the chair were old curtains. Ha.
