Dropcloth Slipcover

O,K so before I get into my completed projects for the week I have to tell that I was the LUCKY girl to be chosen for an interview over at Threadneedle studio so if you would like to know a little bit more about how I get started doing what I do stop over and check it out. Angie has a great site with lots of inspiring work and fun posts. She really knows what she's doing!!

Now on to business. I'm getting closer to getting my to~do list from last week all finished up. This was one of the things that I had on it. A chair to slipcover for the The Hog Shed Done ~ 1 chair and I'm really liking it. the pillow was my inspiration for using the Drop cloth as the fabric

it was an old feedsack and the color and texture was really close. I wanted to do something fun on the back and I thought these extra large eyelets were perfect

Pictures not great but they are a brushed silver color



oh yeah and some other pretties for the shop too.



Have a great weekend
Cyndi

This looks AWESOME! I love the detail on the back. I had the same thing on my wedding dress, so you know I'm a big fan! ;) Lovely work!

Love the slipcovered chair. Was it easy working with the drop cloth? I have this on my to do list for a wing chair.
The burlap sack pillow really makes the re do of the chair.

Your slipcover is great, the back is stunning. You made this out of a dropcloth, I am interested to know if it is white or the off white dropclothes I see in the Home Depot and paint stores.
