While we are working on ottomans......

Hey there! I realized how busy I was this week when I looked over last week’s post! So I had just finished up the bamboo ottoman.  I then grabbed two vinyl ottomans from my storage and was off running!  By Friday I was at my upholsterer getting him to make me a few buttons.  I have logged many hours on my sewing machine this week.  Here is a picture story of my creations. 

 

 I love this Ikat fabric so much!  I sold the rocker and it is now at it’s new home in North Carolina.  I hear my client was thrilled! I have a trusted delivery partner who hand delivered to her for a very reasonable $185.  I could not drive it there for that price.

 I really took time to center the pattern and I am thrilled with it! The coordinating piping steps it up a notch.  It’s all about the detailing!

 Here is a look at the underside.  I reused the cardboard since it was in good shape.

This beauty is listed and ready for a home!  Next I decided to glam up the round ottoman with that awesome pink velvet I used on the x benches!

 I made my piping this time.  The bench went smooth although sewing through the thick felted back velvet was challenging in multiple layers!

 Blush is such a great color! It looks good with neutrals, blues and greens.  A soft accent which you will pet frequently!

This one is also listed and ready to go! ☝️

Next up I am working on perfecting my sewing skills so I can crank out custom pillow covers. I used the ikat for my prototypes.  Adding zipper access is important to me so I am working on my skills.  

 One down! This fabric looks incredible with the cobalt couch!  I may just throw this set in for whoever purchases it.  My stitches are wonky and it’s not perfect around the zipper but I am pleased with the pattern.  I will be finishing up the second soon.

The reason I was hot for pillows is I want to start making some for my Adrian Pearsall couch which I plan on picking up in the coming weeks. It needs a full restoration which I will be coordinating and I figure if I get the pillows made it will excite me even more!  

I posted a video this week where I was working on getting basement musty odor out of some 1971 Knoll yardage my aunt gave me. I used a vinegar steam and in 2 treatments, it is pretty much eradicated!  Stop by my Facebook page and have a watch.  The fabric is Dynamic, which was reissued a few years back and currently available at $165 a yard!!!!!  So before I cut it I wanted to clean it, now I am practicing pillows! Ha.  

THIS WEEKEND: I will be camping in the Catskills.....pretty much off the grid.  I may randomly get alerts or emails but I know for a fact there is no service in the campground.  I will respond to inquiries as soon as possible but after we arrive Friday through Sunday when we leave, do not expect a response.  All orders purchased after Thursday night will ship the following Monday.  I am pretty much shipping same or next day at this time so I would not say this is much of a delay, but just know it’s only because I am out of town. I am having an eBay buyer picking up some blow molds at our campsite to save him from driving all the way to PA from northeast of Binghamton! I love working work into my trips and glad to save him from a crazy road trip.  Plus Jesus, Mary and Joseph will be our copilots on the trip! 😂👌 Thanks for all your support!  I have been shipping out at least 2 orders a day recently! Lots of textiles on the move.  I just restocked Kantha Quilt placemats and have 7 more sets available.  There are some at my mall space locally as well.  

Have a great week!
