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!

Hmm I guess it is now "your" chair in a way.
Looks wonderful.

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!

Noni said...

soooo nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!

Chancy said...

That is one hot chair!

Darci said...

I LOVE seeing what folks do with your fabrics and trim. Thanks for posting it!!

Jess said...

No, thank YOU for caring. :) You guys are so kind!

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

dede said...

Really nice. I want.

Elizabeth said...

Looks fantastic! I want it too.

CitricSugar said...

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.

Regan Rothery said...

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!

KayCee Studios said...

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

Well done to her!

Miss Missy 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
