I loved everything about this fabric, the look, hand and how it stood up to the rigors of sewing.
Here is the Before shot.
Earlier this year I started a new arm of my sewing business called Fabric Sewlutions. Since I mainly sell online, I wanted something that was more local. You can visit my new website here to check it out if you are in the Toronto/Durham area. I will be linking to My Uncommon Slice of Surburbia and Miss Mustard Seed's Linky Party

I made myself one year younger! You see, today is my birthday and to be sure of my age I had to use a calculator. It seems that for the past year, I thought I was a year older than I really am - go figure.
Tomorrow I plan to take off a few more years by dyeing those pesky gray hairs that are getting out of control.
It was a beautiful day and I am blessed for being here.
Lately I have been doing a lot of financials and bill paying, which I hate doing. So what do I do when I don't want to do something? You guessed it, procrastinate by doing something else. I told myself that I needed to have something to put all my loose receipts in so that they were contained. This leather envelope is what I came up with.
While I was at it, I used the opportunity to use up some of my leather scraps and practice some stamping. The stamping did not turn out that well, but I got to make something useful from scraps that was taking up space.
This large padded ottoman was originally upholstered in a light cream fabric that lived through the pen marks of a growing child and claw marks of a curious cat. It was time to add new life with a textured elegant fabric that can be easily cleaned when needed --- ENTER the Slipcover!
I will be linking this post over here so go on over to see over fabulous transformations.
