Office Chair Slipcover

This office chair was looking fugly and blah. My Sewlution was to make a slipcover for it.

Slipcovers are great because it instantly changes the look without too much of an investment. I used a red and white check matelasse fabric and threw in some menswear waistband interfacing for the skirting.

Watch for more slipcover Sewlutions!

Much to do in 2011

Thank you to everyone that kept me hopping in December. January is proving to be equally busy in the studio. Changing things around and adding new stations is challenging when you have orders to get out. I will try to show these changes this month.

I had lost my painting table because of my new industrial serger (more on that at a later date) so I had to come up with a space saving solution. This pull out painting tray is what I came up with. I used the tracks from those kitchen pull-out bins and went from there.

Cut out your hole.

Drop in plastic tray.

Fill the plastic tray with colour.

Pull out when you need to do your painting, staining or dyeing.

Push in the mess and save some space!

I am very pleased and will get around to painting the edge of that board this year.
