Linen, Canvas & Velvet

I just love it when something turns out far better than I pictured it:



I sewed a lovely red velvet and heavy white canvas
to the blue linen.


It was time consuming with all of that fabric cutting, seam folding
and of course sewing but I wanted the chair to have
a 'hand made' feel to it.


I just love how the fabrics play off of each other.
The striations in the linen versus the heavy duty durability of the
canvas versus the soft touch of the velvet.

  2. Amazing Job! I've finished one myself (a painted union jack chair) and no matter how you tackle it, they are so time consuming.

    I did a table recently with the Bristish flag - came out great but also time consuming!
