I have been quite busy sewing and planning out new projects.
This newest slipcover I completed 2 days ago, using my pattern "Theodora" in white.
The floral pattern is a soft blueberry blue and easy on the eye. Again, I used the linen-cotton canvas fabric available from Spoonflower.
Here is a link to Theodora in my shop, Lilyoake. Its available in 17 different fabrics, 2 types wallpaper, and gift wrap!
I am participating in the Arts North Studio Tours in September and need to have things to sell to the public, who might be touring my studio and looking for items I design and make.
I decided slipcovered chairs were a great thing to offer and began scouring Goodwill stores for sturdy, undamaged one of a kind dining chairs which I could paint, upholster and make slipcovers for.
Every chair I offer will come with new upholstered seat PLUS a removable/washable slipcover, giving the chair more versatility!
The easy part was painting the frame and sewing the slipcover - the hard part will be pricing them to sell, without cheating myself out of my time, supplies and hard work. Isn't that always the case for an artist?
