latest project...

$25.00 yard sale chair. Covered in green velvet

Pulling off the velvet revealed a really pretty needlepoint. Unfortunately the black background was completely faded.
So I recovered :o)

Coiled Fabric basket

Ok, so this started last December back when my family gathered one Saturday afternoon for a Christmas brunch at my sister Cindy's house. She and her husband have a cute little house with a nice size yard for their 3 dogs to run in. Inside, her style is ceiling to floor, she likes simple antiques and a slightly rustic look. This even carried over into a little basket placed on the floor in the living room near the entrance for her puppies toys. Perfectly matching the colors in her home...sort of rusty reds with golds & forest greens. Very cozy. Of course, when I asked about it, she had found it at one of those stores that gets random others stores unlikely to find again. Not to mention, her color scheme its very different from my own. But, it was SO cute & my own puppies need one.

Fast forward to Easter time. I was checking out my daily blog reads & Sew Mama Sew had Spring Sewing ~ Easter Tutorials links which contained a link to a Fabric Easter Basket at Moda Bakeshop. Cute right? So, of course, I had an ah ha moment, and I was off to buy supplies.

Oddly enough, not long after that I was checking out the latest "recent with pictures" crafts on Craftster and came across this post stared by someone named Jenicat with a similar but different take on the coiled

Anyhow, on to my version...

I'm pleased with how it turned out, a bit more scrappy than Jenicat & a bit less scrappy than Moda. From the looks of it will need to make a variation for a kitty bed.
