My new project: A Chair pt 3

Oh la la my chair now has underwear.
On Tuesday I put the new springs in,
webbed the back & tacked the hessian on.
I've been doing my class at Padgham Upholstery in Moorabbin East.

Isn't she pretty.

The back webbing.
The springs tied down this was the hardest part.

Owls Owls & more Owls

I got this new owl fabric a little while ago, so made some more of my small cushions.
 These cushions covers are removable & very easy care, just pop them in the wash then line dry or tumble dry on a warm setting. The inserts are handmade by me too & they are fully machine washable too. They are approximately 20 x 30cm the perfect cuddling size.
 I'll be listing some over on madeit and some in my my etsy  store too. 
There are bunting flags to match & a quilt on the way.

My new project: A Chair pt 2

I started my upholstery course last week, it was heaps of fun ripping tacks out of the wooden frame & salvaging as much of the 1940's bark cloth as I could to use in another project. I am learning so much, it's great fun to see everyone naked chairs. Do you like my naked chair. It's quite different from before.
Do you like the new webbing I put on the base, I felt very clever doing this.
  I have had to buy new springs for the seat & I'm going to cover it in this Ikea fabric.
