A thing made from my fabric

Blog reader Melissa Swanson sent me a photo of this chair makeover she performed with my Fireworks print. She should have kept that under wraps, because now I'm going to have to break into her house and steal it.

Wow, That's absolutely beautiful. The fabric goes great with wood, and the style of the chair. Love it!

Looks great! If she could give me a piping lesson that would be fabulous! Haha!

I have two chairs almost EXACTLY like that. I've been meaning to re-upholster them for about two years now. ha!

Awesome! I was at a store in my hometown last week. (The store is called Groovy Mama in Regina, Sk, Canada) And I saw some diaper bags there made from your fabric. I would've taken a photo, but didn't have my camera!

Wow! I'm searching my house now, to find what chair I can use to copy that! Love it.

Really nice. I want.

If I help you steal it, can I borrow it sometimes? :-D

GrandmaG - love the handle "mumstr". It rocks.

It's a beauty! Really perfect fit for the fabric.

Why, that chair looks terrible in that house. Being as caring as I am, I am willing to go and take it off her hands. Because I'm a giver.

;) In all seriousness, that's gorgeous. Fab-o job on that chair! And gorgeous fabric!

Brennan said...

I love it!
Oh, and just thought i would tell you, recently I've redesigned my bedroom and one full wall is -wait for it-...orange!
I sampled the colour of the How About Orange banner to get it!
I'm in LOVE with orange!

Perhaps we can create a time share on that chair? Because I am in love.

Well done to her!

Unknown said...

Thank you all for your compliments on my chair! I'm so happy with how it turned out. Jessica's fabric is perfect for it!

hi-d said...

I love it!

Sarah said...

That's lovely! I've been scouring craigslist for some good chairs to makeover (and your fabric is high on my list, by the way). Stupid Chicago - the good stuff goes super fast. or people want absurd amounts of money for their garbage.

Leamonteach said...

Wanted to let you know that I also think I spied a needle case made of your fabric (same one, pink and red?) in the first few pages of the Interweave Knits Summer 2010 issue. Go knitters!

Jessica said...

I love that chair! such a nice shape and the perfect fabric compliment : )

Any time I see something orange I think of your blog (as I'm sure many others do), so here's and orangey poem for you that I stumbled upon today... (if you don't like poetry, just ignore this link, hehe) http://thegreenapplecore.blogspot.com/2010/05/poem-of-week-by-aimee-nezhukumatathil.html
