It was a sultry 105 degrees last weekend so I decided to finally get around to decorating the patio. That was a good idea because I spent the weekend inside in my sewing room. I scrounged through my fabrics and came up with some canvas drop cloths, a ticking stripe, and a couple of small pieces of decorator fabric.
I don't do ruffles inside my house, but for some reason the gingham ruffle on the pillow sham just seemed like the perfect thing for outside. I wish I could have got my ruffler to work on my machine, it keeps jamming up and I got frustrated and just did it the old standby way with a basting stitch and pulling the thread. Time consuming, but totally worth it in the end. I love them.
Scored this fabulous ottoman at Goodwill for $10! I have a canvas drop cloth slipcover cut out. I will finish it this weekend I hope. Tutorial coming soon!
