I haven't sewn much since the 1990's, but I love these ottomans and didn't want to throw them away, or pay for someone else to recover them. It made my brain hurt a little to figure out how to make it work, but I did it! Squares are so much easier than circles. One down, one to go. $15 in supplies each, sweet.

I agree, very nice!

Of all the things I learned from my Mom, sadly sewing was not one of them. She was awesome with sewing!

It would make a good target for your new Glock. :D kidding

Yeah, I was thinking target, too, but decided to refrain. Good piano players are so hard to find, you really don't want to upset them. Good job on the sewing.

Say, 88, speaking of targets; how's the cowboy action shooting that you posted about last summer going? (Hey, we're Taurus Armed. If we can get the OP to help derail the thread, so much the better! :D )

88, please except this small virtual token as an apology for my Glock comment! :)

I tried it and decided it wasn't my cup of tea. Mr.88 loved it though, and he's accumulated his needed firearms for next year already. I'll make him a spiffy outfit now that I have my sewing machine all cleaned up after years of storage.

Ya know, just thinking about it, in this throw away world of ours, sewing sounds refreshing to me.

My grandma sewed, knitted, crocheted and made clothes for many people. It was a much better day back then.

Great job! That seam around the top is so even it looks like you've been reupholstering for years. I've always been fascinated with the process and even have a leather office side chair with nice wood and a torn leather seat that I've been hanging onto for years as I want to restore it.
