  2. What a brilliant job you’ve made of that chair post puppy mayhem. You are indeed a woman of many and various talents.
    Good tip for not leaving a seam allowance when making cushions – I do hate a saggy corner.

  6. Loved what you did with the chair, you need to take a photo of the dog sitting on the chair. We can’t sit on anything new unless our dog has tried it first!

  7. What a lovely job you did on the ,dogs, chair.? Do you think they will realise that it’s no longer “theirs” ? Love your set of dolls clothes too. Took me right back to the ones I made for Christmas for you and Tina, all those years ago.! XXX

    • Is that you, Mum? I’ll never forget all those doll’s clothes you made for us that Christmas – one of the best presents ever. The chair is in the “sun room” – dogs have been relegated to their suitcase bed and they seem happy enough. Xx

    • Most old fashioned chairs can be given a new lease of life for 21st century living and at least they tend to be sturdy and worth transforming – not like flat-pack furniture which falls apart after 12 months so you have to go back and buy some more!

  18. Sheila, I love what you’ve done with this chair. Your tutorials are so thorough and easy to follow. That pink and blue combination will be right at home in your sun room. And those fabric combos are brilliant.

    You have some mad skills, woman, and great taste in fabrics.
