Temporary Love Seat Cover

Over this Thanksgiving holiday I was expecting my family to come into town for the weekend. My guest bedroom is a mess! Meaning it has almost everything in there but the kitchen sink to make it into a NY apartment! Okay, maybe not that bad, but It’s turned into my mothers personal closet/dressing room. Long story short cleaned it up as best as I could but I had to deal with the elephant in the room. Picture below.
IMG_3175.JPGIMG_3176.JPGAs you can see its old and seen better days. But I was in a jam and needed to do something QUICK. So this is what I ended up doing.IMG_3177.JPGIMG_3179.JPGIMG_3178.JPGTo secure the bottom and the sides I simply used some push pins to hold it in place. Now that the holidays are over looking at the fabric it gives me an idea that I just might use it to reupholster it sometime soon. For now I’ve gotta get back to my day job…transforming people with their beauty thru hairstyling.
Thanks for reading and see you guys again soon! Please leave any feedback or I for that might inspire or I can possibly help with.

Colorful Wonders

These past two weeks have been a rough one and would explain my absents from posting. Last I posted about loosing my dog to Cancer & the day I was traveling back home I got news there was another death in the family. But now that I’m slowly getting back on the beaten path I wanted to share with you some colorful patterns that I’ve come across and would love to work on…soon!
By the way the package of my sewing machine (that I had my dad mail me from CT) came a couple days before I had to go back home to CT. I was so busy with work that I didn’t have time to open it. However, when I did to my surprise I found that the petal was damaged in the mailing shuffle. The case that holds the sewing machine and everything with it; opened some how. While my sewing projects are on hold for a moment. It gives me more time to look around at some prints and textures I’d like to work with.

P. Kaufmann Sugar Baby Splash

All of these fabrics can be found online at: online fabric store. I’m dreaming about ordering all of these and making pillows (decorative) and some draperies. The last one called Sugar Baby Splash from P. Kaufmann I think would go perfect in a nursery room. What do you think? Either way you’ll be seeing them sometime soon so check back to see what I do with them.

Tell me what would you do with these fabrics? Enjoy your Thursday!!

Fruit Punch Love

I fell in love with this myself and plan to use it in my own home. However I brought a sample swatch over to my client’s home and immediately they liked it. Check out the before and after pics below, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them!! 🙂

I’ll soon have a page dedicated to all the work I do to make it easier for future clients to see what I can do.
