New Ottoman Cover

I finally finished it. It was NOT easy! And, yes, I changed my mind about the skirt fabric. My mind is forever changing. But the pink stripe didn't look as good as I thought it would when I took it out and really gave it a good look against the other fabrics in the cover. But then I came upon this little chevron-type fabric and it  really looked lots better and cuter. I cannot begin to tell you how much fabric I've given away lately. It was time to admit I'd never use all of it ever. I gave several boxes full of fabric to the thrift store and bags full to a friend in our church. I still have some left but it gives me enough that I can make a few things without having to buy more fabric. I truly am scaling down.


I'll never use 4 fabrics again to do an ottoman.


I could not get it tight/snug enough so I had to tie it to the legs. If I were smart, I'd redo it, but no one ever accused me of being smart. ;-) You'll notice hubs' shadow of his long, strong legs on the right. He had to put a cluster of his rimrod grapes on there. He's such a stylist! LOL Noooo, he really isn't.


What is interesting about this fabric is how the artist designed a series of dots and pink and white to make it look like a chevron when view from afar. While hand hemming this and being up close to the fabric I could see how the dots and the positioning of pinks and white made it look that way. Amazing.

Look at the clever lace design in each of these hanging lamps.


A bedroom in a dilapidated vintage room.


Cupcakes for a king or queen. How cute!


Another dilapidated room, which seems to be all the rage now.


That huge iron pot sure makes a statement in this yard. Beautiful.


This is actually a manageable idea for a picnic at your favorite park, just take your own table, chairs and hanging lamp. I quite like it, but it'd be Love Bunny doing all the moving and lifting. I don't think he'd be too keen on that. ;-)


Lovin' the colors in this one.


I have some hat boxes like those.


Wouldn't you love an outdoor shower like this one?


One of the most adorable spots I've ever seen.
