Sewing for Fun and Healing


Hello All!
Happy Friday!

Last week I decided that Yes I did want to create a slip cover for my
gorgeous (orange) couch, that doesn't seem to match with anything!
I have been dreaming about how nice it would look
in my art room in a soft white to match my rose adorned curtains
(see header, right side)...
So that is what I have been doing for 4 days, and I am almost done!
Yippeeeeee!



I watched a few YouTube videos and got the general idea,
then just winged it from there...
So far so good! I have finished sewing the liner and the top slipcover,
and have even finished the ruffle.
Just a few more touches and I will share a "before" and "after" photo. 

It was a big job, but not near as bad as I thought it would be,
and boy does it feel good to start a project and not stop until it is done : )



This is what is on my table now...
Three more prayer flags for a swap at Creative Lenna.
I have dyed some lace, dyed some fabric, used some old tea bags, some beads, 
and I still have the sewing and final embellishments to do.
Creating these flags is very enjoyable...contemplating the prayer, thinking good thoughts
around healing and peace....all feels very GOOD. 
Thank you so much Lenna for an opportunity to partake in such a fine swap!


What are you creating this weekend ?

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hugs,
Terri

Can't wait to see the slipcover. I have been wanting to sew one for a while. I have the fabric, and also purchased some drop cloths to practice so I son't make a mistake with the linen that I purchased. Did you watch the Miss Mustardseed videos? Hers are really good and very detailed.

Hello Terri. You are very brave to tackle a slipcover but I have no doubt you will do a fantastic job. I can't wait to see your finished work. I love the prayer flags. You and Gail have inspired me to begin making some. I have two featured in my current post and I just finished 3 more. I would like to make more as you have with a like theme. I love your angel it looks dimensional. Is it fabric? Thanks for always inspiring. Hugs, Linda

Jo said...

the prayer flags are gorgeous! and i cant wait to see the finished slipcover ... how brave of you to take that on!

Linda said...

your prayer flags are gorgeous-so glad we're in the swap together Terri!Impressive that you're making the slip cover! I used to do things like curtains -years ago- but have since resorted only to sewing on cards or mixed media-no more preciseness for me! I was able to play with abstract art this week for the first time and loved it.

sharon said...

You are making me want to redo my house now Terri! Your sofa will be gorgeous, and I am green with envy!
Looooove your prayer flags...I have to get started on mine!

Those covers look wonderful, how very brave and adventurous of you! The prayer flags have an amazing vibe to them, made me feel good just to look at them, I kept the page open while having a cup of tea and loved looking at them xx

Lady Linda said...

Oh Terri...such a major project. I am impressed. I guess I'd be too scared to tackle such a huge project.

Dorthe said...

Terry, your prayer flags, looks so very beautiful, I so love them, and the slipcover suits to perfection- it will be a wonderful feeling to have it compleated.
Hugs,Dorthe

Vicki said...

Terri, I know your new slipcover will be perfect!! I enjoy seeing all of your amazing creations. Those prayer flags are wonderful!! I am not too crafty, but I do enjoy seeing everyone else's creations. I am wanting to try my hand at embellishing some vintage bottles. I ordered some ribbon, and now I need some vintage looking perfume labels. We will see. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead, my friend. Vicki

Donna Heber said...

You are very talented Terri. I wish I could sew. Your slipcover will be as gorgeous as your pretty curtains.
