Sneak Peak at Other Part of Sofa
My cat always finds a new place to sleep. The old sofa while I was working.
How does it go? If you fail, try, try again.
Last night I started the other part of the couch. I had bought this coordinating "duck" fabric.
Let me tell you. I hated it. I gave it a try. Cut, sewed, piped, sewed and I was so disappointed.
I didn't like the color or texture.
Ugly Duckling fabric
Now what??? Before I jumped into my car back to the fabric store yet again I remembered I did have a small stash of fabric. 12 year old stash. Low and behold, there was this super soft Waverly fabric in a sunny shade of yellow. Ever so subtle stripes.
I had some serious piecing action going on, but in the end, it is so cherry and a nice compliment to the stripes. I tried my hand at piping again and learned how to stitch real close with my zipper foot. I also made a teeny tiny ruffle at the top. I had a seam and thought how cute would it be to make a ruffle in the curtain fabric. I had just enough.
All in all, this part of the couch is not perfect and my type A personality is knocking, but I kept telling myself....it's for the camper and you can always make another one...LATER, much LATER.
I can't wait for daylight so I can put these two babies in the camper!
