I decided to switch gears this week. I have been chomping at the bit to get into the paints and decided to paint on fabric. I had done this once before on several ottomans that sold and decided to create a chair.
This floral is just one of the pieces I've painted for the chair and I have all the pieces cut out and ready to go to the furniture manufacturer. This will be a great piece of artwork with kids in mind, since it can be wiped off.
The stash of unused patterns that I have purchased and put in a stack to someday use is really big. I pulled this out the other day and decided to create a blouse just for me.
When one of my suppliers came to visit right before the closing of the store, I purchased several bolts of clothing fabric... just because. I pulled this out, pre-washed it and went to town with the sewing machine. I love to make a pattern and then make it again with my own variations. This fits perfect and I think I'll see what else I can come up with next week.
Here is the overdue ottoman to compliment the Derby Day Wingback that sold before we even had a chance to advertise it. You just might be interested in this one if you're a horse enthusiast, or know a horse enthusiast! It's very light weight, easy to move around, and priced to sell! You can find it online, Derby Day Ottoman, or see it in person at Reclaimed On Main.
I picked up the finished Hoot Owl Checkerboard Ottoman this week. I'm very happy with the way it turned out... of course I love black and white. And this one, like the others, comes with it's own fabric bag and custom checkers.
I'm in the process of applying to a few shows for my creations and waiting to hear if I get in. I have several more ideas for ottomans I'd like to take to the shows.
