Today I spent the day sewing , a nice break from painting. I am hoping to participate in some vintage markets this fall with my partner Claudine from Condensed Love Home , so I thought today would be the day to make an UPHOLSTER'S WIFE banner .
When I started this little project , I had no idea of the time involved to
-cut 28 upholstery fabric triangles
-sew together ( 2 triangle fabric pieces ) 14 triangles ,
-cut out 14 hand made fabric letters and then adjust the size as they were too big for the triangle
-sew on the letters to the fabric triangles
and finally sew the 14 fabric triangles on to a ribbon
OR MAYBE I AM JUST SLOW ??
I choose 2 different upholstery fabrics to make my banner .
Handmade fabric letters
Machine sewn , once all my cutting was done !!
EXCUSE my basement wall, it is puttied to get ready for painting
AS you know I like to buy all my items previously loved !!
WHAT WERE THESE PILLOWS IN THEIR FORMER LIFE ??
JUST OPEN 1 SEAM - you don't need to open so large
|FILL WITH BATTING AND MACHINE SEW THE OPENING CLOSED|
YOU WILL NEVER LOOK AT PLACEMATS THE SAME !!
Have a great Weekend
