When Its Cold and Gray Outside...Bring Paradise In

 Get Cozy!!!





The Best of Both Worlds-The Beach and the Fire


New Years -New Looks- Upholstery DIY

 My Sewing Living Area Needed a New Look

My Old Vinyl Parsons Chair was Cracking

I Love How Comfy this chair is.....

I found this nice striped upholstery fabric on the Flat Folds Sale Table


Gstreetfabrics.com


I got two pieces of this fabric to do this chair and a small old Wing Chair  in the colors that match my room.

I bought the Gold and Black burnished upholstery tacks to give a little extra to the edges.


I love the stripes and the colors match my decor















I LOVE THESE UPHOLSTERY TACKS!!

We also sell Nail Strips (I should have used on the Back)
But I was in a hurry... and I am the only one that sees my room

I just like to love the surroundings.

Emergency Weather Bootsocks

 Weather unexpected Snow

NO BOOTS-LIVING QUARTERS FLOODED AND LEFT WITH ONE PAIR OF CLOG TYPE OPEN WEAVE SHOES>>> COMFORTABLE TO WEAR BUT NOT GOOD FOR SNOW

c


Grab some excess minky from pillow making





Make long Tubes cylinders and put elastic at the top so it will be adjustable and above the knees


Shaped to a point at the bottom and sew the point like a cone to fit over the end of your foot and elastic at the bottom to hold it on your foot.....   Slide your foot into your clog


                             BOOT SOCK LEGWARMERS

DONE It Worked



New Years Dones-- Small 6 x 12 Lumbar Pillow

 Small Round Lumbar Pillow



Done with some left over material from some Toss Pillows... Just enough

The Trim on the end sof the cylinder is a seam with the seam inside rolled in and topstitched to asimulate actual piping.  There was not enough to do piping.  There is an invisible zipper in the middle of the roll and it is using a premade insert from GstreetFabrics that was a 6 x 12 size of hypoallergenic stuffing.






Invisible zipper sewn in when first making center tube, before sewing on the ends.





After sewing ends pinch seam and top stitch by machine and then handsew down to pillow end

      Pillow Finished and edging sewn down                                       


DONE
