i feel that i accomplished a lot today.
i recovered a stool that i have been thinking of doing since the day i bought it. i was bored and accidentally tore all the tattered vinyl off. (if you have been to my house you have seen this tattered treasure for sure) anyways… that means i dont have a before photo to show you.
all the fabrics are from Worth a Second Look (Victoria st, kitchener). the one i chose for the stool has a slightly wooly feel, but the underside is rubberized. we are messy. we spill everything… so that particular fabric screamed “take me! take me!”
but im still bored. tonight i think my boredom and inability to sleep comes from well… not knowing what to make next. i have all this fabulous fabric i allowed myself to buy today…
and havent a clue what to do with it. its like.. i love it so much i dont want to spoil it by making the wrong thing. so instead i sit here folding it. repeatedly. and then feeling how soft it is, draping it around me like a dress (you know girls, like you did as a kid) and then folding it again.
i have become really so fast at sewing that when i finally decide what i want to make (usually when making for myself) i can do it in under an hour.
… but deciding. ugh.
so i watch a movie — or seven. “the proposal“, despite the fuzziness had a great bag which i thought would be perfect for my new upholstery find… and you can NEVER have too many bags!
