Fabric Photo Friday

Friday is going to be devoted to fabrics and photos of fabrics !  I just finished upholstering my dark leather ottoman with this great chenille that has a diamond pattern.


When our WCAA group toured Virginia Quilting last May we were able to shop in their fabric outlet.  All their leftover fabric is for sale for a really good price.


This is the fabric that I picked up to recover the ottoman.  There is a dark side and a light side, like on an oriental rug.


My other project was making a new cover for Zoe’s bed.  I found an old duvet cover that I made for the guest bed in a closet.  I just cut it down to fit her bed, it already had velcro in the top.


Slowly but surely, the room is getting lighter !
I’ve been playing around with my camera and Darcy’s tutorial was so helpful in learning about photography.  If you have a nice camera and don’t know how to use it then her series is for you !

I love those drapes. I think they are my favorite so far! And compared to what was up there before I think these really do lighten the space. Have a good weekend.

That Zoe is one special dog!!
And that ottoman is really nice!
Have a great weekend and maybe it will stop raining so hard....

I certainly share your fabric love! I love that you do your own upholstery. I am so interested in learning how. Are you self-taught or did you take a class?

Tammy@InStitches said...

Yes, Zoe is quite the ham ! First, I made it as a slipcover and it looked horrible and wouldn't stay put. So I took it apart and decided to staple it in place at the bottom. Headboards are really the only upholstery that I do.

Love it ! I just brought some new fabric today myself. I have my eye on an antique bench... I want to re-do it with this dark brown fabric that has been calling my name. lol I am taking a chance that the price will go down, so I am holding out, keep your fingers crossed for me. I love the ottoman, the fabric is wonderful.
