Summer time is not usually the time when I do many indoor sewing projects, but my daughter, Emily, and her family stayed with us for a few weeks this summer and we worked on lots and lots of projects.
Some of the projects were for my grand daughter Livvy's room.
The first project was ...
... a little childs chair and ottoman Emily's in laws had and were ready to get rid of. She stripped off all the old fabric and recovered the whole thing in new batting ... at this point we were both wondering if we were a little crazy...
... then we started the process of stapling the cute black and white houndstooth fabric we found at the Home Decorator store to the bottom and sides.
We used black piping for the arms and covered buttons to cover the screws that held the arm covers in place.
After lots and lots and lots of staples...
I think it turned out amazing! What a transformation. Livvy loves it and it's just her size.
(look at those cute little feet!)
Emily also made this cute mini pillow from an Amy Butler pattern...
(I love the large houndstooth covered button in the center!)
... and these cute owls to go in her room.
And last but not least we made this duvet cover for her new big girl bed.
It also has black and white houndstooth covered buttons stitched between the squares.
And as you can tell, Livvy loves it too!
We had so much fun working on projects together.
It's always fun to see the creativeness that comes out of my girls. They amaze and inspire me!
As a mom, it really is sweet.
I made a few other projects this summer too, which I can't quite show you yet,
but next week, I promise!
And did you know, Tuesday, Sept 6th is the first day of the Moda Blog Hop?
You won't want to miss it.
Lots of fun projects and give a ways,
fun stories and questions we have to answer (oh those questions)!
