Bloggy Break

You may have noticed that I’ve been on a little of a bloggy break since Valentine’s Day.
I was commissioned to make some vinyl (yes I said vinyl) cushions for some retro chairs.

Lets just say I won’t be signing up to sew with vinyl in the near future. I’m sure its like childbirth, once you’re away from it for a while you forget how painful it is!

Anyway, I think they turned out pretty well. The sides, cording and bottoms are orange basketball looking vinyl and the tops are Kool Koi, by Waverly outdoor fabric.

The lady said these chairs were probably from a waiting area in a beauty shop.

In these pictures the zippers are in the front and top. They aren’t supposed to be there. I was under the impression that the big cushion went on the back, and the small cushion was for the bottom.

Hopefully it can go that way, or the fish look upside down.

Upside down fish, zippers in back.

    Those chairs look really cool! I can’t imagine what it’s like to try and sew vinyl though; hopefully you were paid the big bucks!
