The Ladies at Riley Blake Designs are never surprised to hear
I am making yet another GINGHAM PROJECT!
I bet most of you are not either!
I never tire of anything GINGHAM....in fact at the moment
I am working on yet another BEDDING project...
( update soon)
I chose ivory, burgundy and and a rose coloured wool
to create this checkered pattern..
There was little sewing for this project....
I ripped the wool...( love- that I could do that)
in 3 inch strips, folded them both to the inside, pressed
and then started weaving the strips and stapling them to the inside of stool.
This is one of those vintage stools that the lid opens for storage...
I then ripped 4 inch strips in ivory and hand stitched a ruffle to finish
it off...I left a rough edge to eliminate any bulk....
I hand stitched it to the inside weave edge...
I rather fancy it !
There are many ladies that will be showcasing
