Now for Something Completely Different

 

Before Christmas my hubby had a clear out in the garage.. Now this in itself was well overdue.. But this overhaul led to him finding a few things which had been buried for few years.. Among other things he re-discovered he had a staple gun.. with a new box of staples..

Later that week he had cause to go up into the loft.. Mainly as I wanted the Christmas Decorations relocating.. So as he moved this and that up there, he also came across several large pieces of fabric neatly folded in plastic bags.. He had been given this maybe 10 years ago, as a lady who was into Interior designing.. She was throwing the fabric away, and so Hubby asked could he keep it.. ( as he knew I would probably find some use for it one day.. as I had 30 years  in the textile industry )

But it got stored and forgotten..

Now over the last few years as my Granddaughter has grown Now 4 years of age.. And as she climbs upon our dinning chairs sometimes with buckles on her shoes.. the fabric on our chairs got pulled and scuffed..

Soooo… We put these two finds together and Below are the results..

Old Chair.

Chair before we started

Pulling Old chair to pieces

Chair taken apart

Taking the old seat apart so I could get the right shape to cut out fabric

Taking old covering off

Next I used some clear plastic so I could line up each piece to cut out exactly the same fabric pattern to repeat on all of our four chairs..

Laid template onto fabric so that each one had same pattern in fabric

The fabric is a thick cotton weave print.

So I cut out Four bottom cushions matching pattern.. Then I Cut out 8 pieces for the backs of the chairs.. These had to be sewn the shape of the backs turned through and then I just slotted the old backs into the new sleeves…. 

Hubby was needed to hold the backs as I had to sew the tops closed close to the edge but leaving a lip to slot into the top back staves… Each one had to fit tight, so there was lots of pushing and pulling to get them fitted snug.. Sorry the below photo is a little blurred.

I cut out matching fronts and back and then sewn them so old back could slide in like a sleeve

Close up of back

Hubby I don’t think trusted me with the powerful staple gun,, so as I stretched the fabric to fit the bottom cushions he stapled into position.

Here was the first finished Chair..

Completed chair

And the completed set..

Chairs now completed

Cost… Zero!..

And we have a different fabric for our next project.. We have two old chairs in the loft.. SO…. watch this Space!

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
