My 2nd chair project = an old blue wing-back I've had for forever
*original fabric: a blue velvet.... boring....
I wanted to do an all-over handmade shibori pattern
My inspiration was a piece of raw silk I made when I traveled to Japan for a textile design study abroad program in the summer of 2007
we got the opportunity to visit a very old shibori museum in an edo period village high in the mountains of Japan and make a piece to take home
There are a few different types of shibori

I went with a thick organic cotton/hemp blend canvas for the chair b/c it has a nice feel and it's very durable
I also like the way this canvas picks up the color
I like how the white welt (piping) turned out!
now, I still need to find 2 front legs & finish the cushion
anybody know a good place to find nice furniture legs?
(preferably on casters)
photos coming soon..................
Here are the photos of the finished vintage kitchen chair from last week:
(want to find one to do for myself now)
Have a great week!
