So the first thing I wanted to show you is this couch.......
It's really comfy, but I just don't like the color brown. Pat's mom gave me a bunch of old sheets so I used those to make slip covers for the couch. Check it out now:
This was my first time ever making slip covers. It was a pain and so fulfilling at the same time. Like I said, I'd never taken on making slip covers before, so I really had no idea where to start. Each section got better and better as I figured out what I was doing. I have two more couches in the house to make slip covers for, as well as six chairs. At least now I'll have a better idea of how to drape those suckers!
Pat LOVES dragons, so I made these for the couch too:
Dragon pillow covers. Everyone loves them. I'm really happy with how they came out. I tried to paint them on first, but wasn't happy with the results as the material lended to the paint bleeding. So plan B was to cut the dragons out of felt and stitch them on. MUCH BETTER. I love them.
I've been obsessed with bunting and banners lately. I wanted to incorporate them in the house somewhere so I made this:
LOVE LOVE LOVE! I used black felt for the hearts and stitched them onto a piece of red ribbon. So cute!
I also repainted an old bookshelf:
It was brown. Now it's black. I pulled the back piece off and added contact paper to it to add a little detail to it. I really love how it came out. I showed it to our friend and he thought I bought it somewhere. Yay! Hopefully that means it looks good?
OH YES! I almost forgot, Pat bought me this:
A BAT RUG! My very own Bat rug. He knows me so well.
Well, that's it for the home tour for now. I'll show you more soon.
Kitty says Hai!
