Besides the chair, I've also ripped off the lampshade bandaid. I was nervous to attempt it even after I read about 500 tutorials telling me how to recover a shade, make a new shade, revamp an old shade and I have sort of created a combo to make the mother of all tutorials! It ended like everything else usually does...listen to everyone give their opinion and then just make up my own way in the end. There was one major problem though...as there always is when you go your own way instead of listening to the people who have gone before you. The problem is geometric print fabrics. They are sooooooooo hard to line up, which is why every tutorial says to use a forgiving fabric. I didn't. I used a repeating geometric print. I'm going to finish the one I started and call it a learning curve.
I've already spent time on Hawthorne Threads, searching for "forgiving fabrics." This is like my new fav store times a million! With every fabric, there are links to projects made with the print....go on and see it...you'll love it!
What do you think of these? Forgiving?
Also, has anyone heard of polypropylene? Do we think maybe it's the same as plexi-glass?? Let me know!
