Something Special for Susan

 My Girl friend Susan wanted another slipcover for her couch  this time all white linen. No special instructions so I had my way with this one, a little ruffled skirt
 Ruching  on the cushion that gave it a little bit extra in the detail department
 A couple of white linen and lace pillows with the fabric that was left over  
and a corset tie down the back   I'm really excited to get it back to her!

I thought I'd do a quick update on the chair that I did last week. When my client came to pick it up she loved it with the exception of the skirt  she was hoping it would be just a little longer  and  since we did not have any more of the main fabric we decided to use some of the pipping fabric to do a little double ruffle  so while she went to have a lunch with a friend I was able to get her all fixed up.
I like it  even better with a bit of length added. and so did she!

A Cottage Cutie for Margo

 Again, another great older piece of furniture super solid and sturdy but not what Margo wanted in   her room makeover
 she was thinking a little bit more cottage-ie and I love the way it turned out  she didn't have quite enough of the main fabric so she opted for a green check for the piping. I love the contrast of pipping on the chair
                                            we went with a corset tie down the back
                                  and a short ruffle skirt .    A whole different chair!
                                 Thanks for stopping  have a great rest of the week

Cute loveseat for Karin

 what a great old piece of furniture  ... you would not believe how heavy this gal is! This is her before
and here is the after
 Karin had some matelasse  bedspreads she wanted to make a slipcover out of.  We thought it would be best to use the existing scalloped edging for the skirting and thankfully we had enough.
for the back cushions we simply cut down a couple of pillow shams and it was a perfect fit!
I love the way this one turned out...  so clean and simple but with the beautiful detail from the  matelasse texture, that my camera does not seem to be picking up on in these photo's :(
Thanks for stopping.
