My new addiction in crafting. I have quite a list of things I want to create right now with drop cloth so of course I started with probably the most complicated. We have a chair in our living room that is a hand me down piece of furniture. I don't really mind the chair and I actually think it's still quite comfortable, despite what a few of my family members think. Here is the said chair behind my half naked little guy.
I read a lot of tutorials online about how to start and after washing my drop cloth I started draping and pinning the canvas onto the chair. It took a couple of days to get it all pinned together and then it just sat like that for awhile. I was a little scared to begin the sewing process.
As it turns out it really was rather simple and I only had to unpick a couple of times. I finished the cushion cover yesterday and after getting it on the cushion and placing it on the chair I instantly loved the results!
It's far from perfect, but I'm really ok with my first attempt at making my own slip cover.
I have another project for Helmar on the blog tomorrow that will feature more drop cloth. Now to figure out what project to tackle next.
