Chairs Continued.

 I forgot to take a before picture, This chair I picked up from the nature strip and was black all over and I decided to make a new seat and back rest cover for it.
 This is my lounge room chair so far. The buttons on the back are just temporary. The final buttons will be different shapes and sizes and will have Suffolk puffs (yo yo's) behind them. The front is almost finished. I am going to add a pocket on the front arm rest for scissors in the shape of a flower pot in orange (I am thinking of getting a plastic cup and cutting it in half and ladder stitch it into place). I am also going to add a flower shaped pincushion on the arm rest too.
 A close up of the blanket binding used to cover the piping with.
All around the seams I am going to add a decorative blanket stitch using embroidery wools from Savers.


  1. That's brilliant, Sue! I suspect you might be getting competition for the chair when its finally finished. My cats love a comfy blanket!! And it looks like a blanket chair. :)

  2. You are so clever Sue, your new chair looks great, great job...
