Next lesson : Diamond Tufting
I've had this Dia-tufted chair for about 6 years
I'm so excited I finally get to re-upholster him!
(can't tell you how long I've wanted to do this.....)
He's pretty worn & needs a total makeover!
My Plan is to re-do the dia-tufting by hand w/o using stiches
I striped the chair and sterilized the entire thing
Steri-Fab works great for this
I wanted to give him a really unique textile
(non-repeat since the pattern wouldn't match with the tufting)
I decided to do a free form drip design with layers of yellow, aqua, emerald green, purple & neon orange accents.
(It was like painting a giant size canvas!)
organic cotton/hemp blend canvas
(my fav textile to work with b/c its soft and durable)
To Be Continued.......
Have a great week
