I never make anything for myself. That is partly because I don't pay myself to make things for me, but mostly it's because I sew most every day, for most of the day. So when I don't have to work, I simply cannot sew. I was sick at the end of 2014/ beginning of 2015 and decided that I was going to make myself a present.
I got this adorable hot pink polka dot fabric at Home Fabrics for just $8 per yard. I washed it to pre-shrink it so that I can just throw it in the washing machine when it gets dirty.
I have had this Parsons chair for, well, ever, and had never taken the time to make a slipcover for it. Since it is upholstered in white duck cloth, it has gotten really grubby. I got tired of looking at it and decided to, finally, do something about it.
The slipcover has a button-back, though it is really difficult to see. The buttons are solid pink.
Now, when I walk into my sewing room/office each morning and throughout the day, I am greeted with a bright, pretty new gift to myself.
And I deserved it!
