Prop Up Your Feet!

I am pleased to announce, that I procrastinated no longer and finished the ottoman last night. Don't look to close cause it's definitely not perfect!

I don't know if anyone else out there struggles with this, but sometimes I have such a fear of goofing up a project, that I put off even starting on it, silly I know. I am such an amateaur seamstress, so sewing projects are the worst for me. My sweet husband and children say I just lack a little(lot of) confidence.

Now I am on to the next project, for today it will be a little cleaning and laundry. Have a blessed day!

I am so glad you stopped by my blog! You did a great job with the ottoman. I am actually looking for one I can recover right now. I haven't found anything new that I just love or if I do that I can afford.

I absolutely love the the gift you made out of the fork. I would have never thought about that. How cute would that be for a dinner party...you should email that idea to Sandra Lee on the Food Network. My husband and I are going to Rennigers this weekend, for our 14th anniversary, and I have added silver to my list of things to find.

Love your site...I'll be checking back!!!

You did a great job! And I love how you did the top part; not as much work as re-creating the top cushion with all the piping. I actually like this solution better than if you would have duplicated how it was constructed before!

Nice job recovering! I have an ottoman I've been thinking of doing. You're right...sometimes you've just got to go for it!

The ottoman looks great, you did an awesome job! Thanks so much for the comment you left for me :-) I usually don't make my cakes from scratch, but I have found that the best cake mix is Wal-Mart's Great Value Yellow cake mix (in the pink box). It's moist but has a good texture that works well for wedding and birthday cakes. It's the only mix I use and everyone always comments on how good it tastes. (I never tell them it's a mix ;-) Hope you're having a great day!

Wow! Fantastic job! It really looks great. I can't sew - although I have a machine. I'm so impressed by anyone who can. It sure doesn't look like an amatauer job! Love it!
