When I was working in the store last week, I got to watch Valli embroider some fabric for her famous pillows and I got inspired.
|The husband helping me sand! He's so nice!|
|It had some splitting so we used a bit of glue|
and clamps to remedy the problem
I've had this yellow chair for a while. It was painted black, then poorly painted yellow. My darling husband helped me sand the sucker down and patch up the rough spots. We spray painted it a bronze color (not super exciting, but it'll go anywhere in my house now). I decided to let the pillow do the talking color-wise.
|Guten TAG! Hello in German.|
|These are just straight stitches on canvas to give |
it a little more interest.
|I gathered the tulle, then fabric. |
Then I sewed them together on to the red fabric.
I used the ribbon to accent,
but mostly to cover the gathering stitching.
I embroidered one side and did ruffles on the other like some of the pillows I'd seen on pinterest.com. All in all, a stylish new addition to the art cave (aka craft room).
