I decided to repurpose a brown cord shirt from a charity shop to cover the arms of the chair as they're bound to get lots of wear and Jess could do with a bit of comfort for her arms which have a tendency to be rather sensitive (stupid CFS).
With a bit of faffing this XL shirt was more than enough to cover both arms :) I even managed to use one of the pockets as a mobile phone holder for when Jess actually lets it leave her hand...you know those teenagers and surgical removal of phones! The material that I used for the cushions is a Romo fabric, it's a linen cotton blend and is delicious. It was a bean bag in a previous life :) I'm so pleased to have been able to renovate this chair without spending a fortune. I do love recycling fabric!
Here's the finished article. Not bad even if I do say so myself! The next chair I show you will be patchworked....whenever that may be.
It has to be said that I was rather tetchy by the time I finished this project. It has taken me a good few days and frankly stamina is still low so tempers may have frayed around here a little. Thank goodness for the postman and his bundles of fabric-y goodness!! A whole FQ stack of Kate Spain's Good Fortune from Julie at Intrepid Thread. Woohoo!
Then there was a layer cake of Pure and charm pack of Authentic by Sweetwater from here. Thanks to the very lovely Fiona for tipping me off about these goodies :)
They put a smile on my face but I think it will take a large dose of chocolate to improve the mood!! Catch you soon x
