Can I Get a What`What


I talked about this chair in my previous post.....
Lots of history....lots of problems....but I had a vision.

I used tea stained antique crochet doilies and scarves to cover the entire back of the chair,
and to embellish the front and seat....
and to embellish the front and seat as well.
The lace pieces were sewn on where applicable and
an intense fabric glue was used on others, depending on what worked best.
I really like how this looks from the back....
The top back of the chair is still under construction....
as a row of these hand made muslin roses will be applied down the arms and around the back.
but will be tea stained before attached to the chair permanently.
The good thing about this piece is that it is still very usable.....
Tomorrow I start on this monster.....
But for tonight, I'm off to make roses.
I'm determined it will be finished in the morning :)

  8. What a clever idea. I don't know how much actual use it could hould up to but the affect is wonderful. Did you add a lining first then sewn the lace. Great piece. A real conversation piece. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I love Lace and the chair looks so sweet!
    I do have a concern though ... are you able to sit on the lace without breaking the treads from the stress?
