Well, not really....but crazy things are happening because I still am sewing and crafting daily! And I'm definitely NOT pregnant. (A few people posed that question after the last crafty post)
My most recent project?
Boy Bean's glider cushions.
First, a bit of history....
This glider was purchased at a yard sale in March of 2008. Yep. Almost 3 years ago. And for the past THREE YEARS I have hated the cushions. Abhorred them. In fact - when we bought the glider, the only caveat was that I would get to replace the cushions.....immediately.
Apparently "immediately" is defined as "almost 3 years."
Good to know.
Why did I dislike the cushions so?
Because they were dirty, aged, and purple. And an ugly purple at that. See?
I think I've clearly stated before my lack-of-skill with a sewing machine...but just to be clear...I've only recently been able to use it without having to throw out whatever I was working on.
However, I had a leftover king fitted sheet from the material pile for Boy Bean's bedding...I purchased it on clearance at Target for $3.50...and I thought why not try to make a matching cover for the glider? I mean, it couldn't possibly look worse than it has for the past 3 years!
So, with my trusty scissors, sewing machine, and staple gun.....I sewed a completely removable slipcover for the back of the glider....and recovered the ottoman......
I know it isn't perfect - but for practically no $$, I think it turned out well!
Even though I broke out in a cold sweat of fear each step of the way.
