Finally, Work-in-Progress Wednesday...


Well, I've finally started work on the cushion covers for the cushions that sit on my dining room chairs. In addition to going with a wild-for-me fabric, I've also decided to make slipcovers rather than just covering the cushions. I really want to be able to wash the covers instead of washing the entire cushion (which didn't work very well...my cushions are really badly stained). I decided to be brave and go with zippers rather than velcro for the openings, so by the time I'm done will all eight cushions, I'll have put in 12 zippers. I wonder if I'll consider myself competent at zipper installation by that point, because I sure stink at it now.


Also, I do have to wonder how long it is going to take me, given the kinds of help I am getting.

Aww Tuck, he does belong in special ed for cats. Not the brightest bulb in the circuit. The lack of thumbs might also make it hard for him to help.

Cute covers. Hilarious cat.

I love the fabric, but knowing me, I'd make a dress out of it!

Oh wow, you have one of those helpers too! Mine likes to help me iron: snatching what I have off the board and running like heck. I think he thinks they come out with wind.

Ducky, I was thinking a skirt...unfortunately (fortunately?) I only bought enough for the chairs...
