I consider myself an average sewer, I have made clothes for myself and kids over the years. i knew many different kinds of stitches and such. repair lots of clothing and replace zippers etc
Well My DIL wanted pillows for her rocking chair that was her mothers who died while she was younger, my son painted it for her.
i made pillows for the back and seat based on my sons measurement well the back went well but the seat was to small so i used a cushion i had from my rocker up stairs and readjusted so and it is better so happy about that !
now to work on the chair bag for her to put a drink in or a snack while she is feeding my granddaughter or her phone or whatever else she might want... it had to be stable so not your typical tote bag kinda thing ..... i had material let over and just now how to figure out the concept...... finally tackled it and am very happy with the results! I still have to add the straps with buttons so it can be adjusted
my brain hurt from trying to get the measurements right and angles for sure as I didn't want to go back and buy more material.... there will be to handles on the long side that she can wrap around the arm of the chair and attach with buttons.
Will be working on that today.
being retired does have it's perks!
Oh the little rolling seat is my sewing chair and it holds all my sewing things inside and I redid that also years ago it was vinyl originally that cracked and ripped. the bench was still in good shape so I just recovered it
