Yesterday morning before going to work I finished the dining room shades.
These were a little wider than the ones in the living room and hang close together.
I couldn’t get them lined up until I reversed the hardware on one of them so I could pull it down. Live and learn.
Now that the shades are finished (I’m going to wait on the ones for upstairs until I make a few more design decisions) and my sewing machine is still set up, I thought I’d make a couple of pillow covers for the inserts I bought at Ikea.
I had a choice of already-on-hand fabrics which I showed you here.
I decided to use the wide-wale chenille-like fabric for the first two pillows because I’d like to use the print fabric (which I used on this mid-century chair) on a bench for the mudroom entrance which I still have to make .
The other reason I chose this fabric to start with is because I like pillow covers to be corded and this fabric is just too nubby to cord. A simpler cover perhaps.
Even though I know how to cover pillows and cushions I’ll be doing a little research over the next 24 hours to refresh my memory. (Again, wish my sister, who is the better sewer, were here.)
Who are you missing?
