It's true. I dislike home dec very much. Seriously. Interior design is not my forte. But sewing a few pillow on our new sectional from Crate and Barrel (the lounge series - we just keep buying the same couches) revived my sewing mojo.
I sewed the pillows with invisible zippers (I have no idea why - the material is dry clean only and we have dogs). I am recovering the round cube ottomans/tables in the living room as well in these colors.
And for the rest of the project - in the linen color below - we plan to put up curtains to protect the couch from the sun - and give us a respite from below. We have a fantastic view to the ocean but hopefully the curtains won't interfere. My other concern with the curtains - our window is 112" W X 64" H - that's a lot of fabric.
This weekend I sewed a lined A-line skirt, and two Anthropologie style tank tops, not to mention straps for a strapless dress. So, more posts to come!
Good luck for those of you in Hurricane Isaac's path - my thoughts are with you!
