My Creative Space

In the heat of work, there is no time for cleaning. You should see my hands - I always forget to put on my gloves in my haste. Now check out what everyone else is doing in Kootoyoo's My Creative Space

Thrift Store find gets a slipcover makeover

Here is a perfect example of how a slipcover can change the look of a piece. This was a thrift store find. Nice bones, wrong colour and a little worn. I made the slipcover from a low pile chenille that fits like a glove.



Stay tuned for more transformations.

Bar Stool Makover with a Slipcover

This stool was cursed with the blahs.

A slipcover gives it punch and adds new life.

I made the piping detail out of leather.

My Newest Addition

My very good friend who works in a real-estate office rescued this 30 year old serger from a grow op and gifted it to me! I was thrilled to have this vintage beauty in my studio. After a tune-up and several broken needles (well, I had to get to know him, didn't I?), we are off to a great start.

I have named him Herbie in honour of his 'roots'. BTW did you know that an upper looper needle costs $40?!? -- Let's just say that I won't be breaking any more needles in a hurry.

Stay tuned for exciting projects.....
