This client fell in love with this fabric and hoped we would have enough. There was only 5.5 yds of the paisley, so she bought some solid brown velvet fabric to use as the piping and anywhere else we needed.
The chair before was muslin covered and was meant to be slipcovered.
The upper back was rounded so I "boxed" it along the top and did piping on both edges.
I also ran piping down the inside arm seam. The paisley chenille fabric shaped and bent really well on all the curves.
SIDE NOTE #1
We headed to St. George and Vegas for Spring break. We hiked at Snow Canyon. The boys loved climbing on all the rocks. On one of the hikes there were pioneer names written on the rocks out of axle grease.
One of my boys asked, "Why did they write their names on the rock?"....my reply, "Why did you carve your name in the kitchen table?"
Besides hiking we went to the pool three times a day! The boys love to swim. Perfect spring break!
SIDE NOTE #2
Last time we were at the cabin...the boys made some swings underneath the cabin. They made three....one for each of them. They loved them.
They also made some bunkbeds in their fort at the cabin....pretty cool huh? They still need to finish their fort and get a roof on it.
