Time flies!

It was in 2012 that I started to weave some fabric for our dining room chairs (I didn’t know how long it had been so I looked up my post here!). I used cottolin – a blend of cotton and linen for the weaving and colours that are in our living/dining room.

My original thought was to recover the chairs myself – but they needed rewebbing, new padding and the New Zealand wood was so hard that it was difficult to get the staples out and I would need special tools to get new staples back in.

So the fabric sat and waited….and waited…

Finally – just this past week – I took the chairs and fabric in to Kim at Blue Velvet Upholstery. She loved the fabric and the chairs and was happy to work with it and select the sections that would go on each chair.

 

I just picked them up and I love them!!

 

Finally! And Marzy approves too 🙂

 

Happy Weaving,

SAORI Upholstery Fabric

One of the things that I am currently working on is some upholstery fabric for our dining room chairs. These chairs are from New Zealand and have needed new covers for a looooooong time.

Each chair will be different, but in the same colour palette…

Finally, enough done for 2 chairs and washed. The fabric is made from Cottolin (a mixture of cotton and linen) and it shrunk quite a bit in the wash – which was a good thing as I want it to be a fairly tight weave.

More to weave and then to try my hand at upholstery! I’ll let you know how it goes…

Happy Weaving,
