I love to SEW

I started the day out planning on making a slipcover for this little chair.

I had bought it with a few other things from fb yard sale.  It was black, so I spray painted it white of course....
Then I recovered the seat.

But we all know that it wasn't needed some lace to go with those pretty curvy curves the chair had.

So this is what I made...

I think it turned out C-U-T-E!

Once I start sewing, I want to just keep on, so I walked through the house looking for something else to make.

I saw the dress form that I had just painted.  Hannah had wanted it as soon as she saw it painted.  She thought it was so pretty...but to me it was just too bare.

I am loving all of the lace and ruffles...who knew I would ever like lace?!

Hannah loves bustles, so I tried making it a little poofy  in the back.

Perfect...I hope she likes it when she comes home from school.

Hope you all are having a 
Blessed Day!

I'm off to do some more sewing, that is if I find something else to get my hands on..wink wink


  1. Love the little chair and the dress form. I am sure your daughter will love it. Isn't amazing what a little spray paint and fabric can do to spruce up our treasures.
