Its done

I just have to fiddle about with the velvet on the front of the cushions as its not fixed one side and i need to level them up , I decided not to go with the braiding in the end.

All made out of two pair of curtains , A tablecloth, Trims of torn tablecloth and Tray cloth some sheets and other bits of fabric i had at hand all bought from jumble sales in the past year.
The before picture in case you missed it.

What do you think .

Its coming along

Its taking time but if i rush it i tend to make mistakes.
The patchwork sofa is coming along , The most difficult part for me next is  the seat pad covers  , I  am  going to unpick the originals and have a go at them over the next week .
 I dont know if i will manage the piping or not but i will have a go. I dyed the Antique lace on the top of the cushion with tea bags .  

 All the fabric so far is stuff i have picked up from jumble sales and its not cost any more than £20 , I think you will either love it or hate it.   

Just two vintage finds this week.

I am always one step in front , This tea set was picked up recently and will go in my kitchen when it has a new lick of paint in the summer.   

This medal was in a box of jewellery i purchased , Rare to find one in its original  box.
