I hope you had a great Mother's Day. I sure did. I have great kids. It is such a blessing to be a mother (most days). I don't like Mother's Day to be a big deal...don't want breakfast in bed or a big fancy dinner. I usually just ask for time. Time off from doing housework, errands, homework etc. Time for me to be crafty and creative.
This mother's day I tackled a couple of projects that had been brewing in my head. Tutorial for one will be coming in June...and it IS fabulous. The other is a slipcover. One of the things on my "bucket list" is to learn to make slipcovers. Ok, I know, lame bucket list.
I started tentatively a few weeks ago....
But didn't get very far. It took me a while to figure out I just needed to cut this fabric and do the front of the arm as a separate piece...not an expert here, so don't laugh.
Once I got the backs of both arms figured out, I was able to move on to the fronts. I even decided to make and add piping so it would look more professional. I am REALLY pleased and proud of the result!
Stay tuned for the finished product (once Joann's gets more cotton duck). I have the other arm front pinned. So I hope to get that done and the hem finished this week. I would like to get all the cushions disassembled and cord recovered (I am reusing old cord and zippers cause I am thrifty (cheap) like that) this week too...high hopes in the second to last week of school....and did I mention we are hoping to close on our new house this week?
