Things keep getting pushed back, I keep putting it off, etc.
This past Summer my mom and dad gave us a hand-me-down sleeper sofa that we're keeping in our back room. This back room is a triple threat: Sewing studio, David's home office (he works from home), and guest room. Boom.
Anyway, the couch needs to be recovered. But y'all. That is expeeeeensive. I know I could do it. OR at least make a cute slip cover.
That's where International Quilt Market 2011 comes in.
Last Fall I saw the CAH-UTEST patchwork quilt at the Freespirit booth. I fell in love immediately.
See what I mean?
Well, after some time thinking, I remembered this little e-book I bought a while back from Pink and Polka Dot. Its literally been sitting on my desktop for over a year. I bought it thinking I would get right on that and I haven't. Obviously.
Looks simple enough, so I'm thinking: I'll make a muslin first and then sew the patchwork slipcover (using the muslin for correct dimensions). Attach the muslin to the back of the slip cover & put over our couch. OH LOOK, A NEW COUCH!
I'm sew excited and will obviously keep y'all up to date on my progress!
This is a HUGE project. Probably the biggest one I've ever undertaken. But, I am overly excited!
Are YOU working on//planning any huge projects?
