I am determined to blog each day, but it has not quite worked that way being that I am the company of one. So, I will continue to do my best, as I truly wish to only inspire others to create new things!
On Memorial Day and Tuesday I worked on a slipcover at my friend Gretchen's home. She was cool enough to let me bring Genny, my canine companion with me for 2 long days of work. Making a slipcover takes time. Before I got to the point of where I could construct the cover, I had to cut out the pieces, and back them with muslin. To make it really special, I serged the fabric and muslin together for that "professional finished" look. I then proceeded to carefully assemble all of the pieces. Genny and I were very happy when I got it all done. As a surprise to Gretchen I found a printed silk with vintage looking flowers on it that matched her aqua toile to make 2 throw pillows. Check-out the pictures. Next up a cute day dress for Megan!!!
