I wrote the other day about working on the Austen Family Album. Today I'd like to show you a finished project. Like most sewists I get requests from all sorts of people for help on different kinds of projects. I try to really limit my acceptances to really close friends for things that I know a little bit about. You may know that I recently moved to an apartment. It so happens that two friends moved from houses to condos near me at about the same time. I benefited from extra furniture and the use of larger vehicles to mention just two things. So when one of these friends asked if I could re-cover the seats on dining room chairs I answered in the affirmative. We shopped for fabric last week and today was set as the day we'd start the project.
I'm happy to report that the project is completed and it's only mid-afternoon! All of us are really pleased with the finished projects. Here are some photos:
The "fire" is a modern device using water vapor and lights. No heat; great for Florida.
This is the kitchen set. The seats here were well worn black vinyl.
Great choice of fabric and great cooperation of friends to get the job done.
