I have a chair problem…

…or an obsession.

A good chunk of my time this weekend was spent sewing. I meant to share the results sooner, because I still don’t have pictures of everything. I’m updating now because it’s an excellent way to procrastinate on something else.

In a previous entry, I mentioned that I wanted to make a new seat and back for our director’s chair. I found the frame next to the dumpster of the building across the street and made a haphazard seat that wasn’t very functional or comfortable.

I had fabric left over from my previous upholstery project, so on Saturday I went to town.

I recently won a blog giveaway from A Certain Type of Glow which included, among other things, a discount code to SoChick‘s online shop. Using this code, I acquired a few different Amy Butler fabrics- this pillow was made from one of them. I had a full yard of this polka dot pattern, and made a lunch bag with the other half. I haven’t managed to get a photo of it yet but it is awesome.

Anyway, I made the seat of this chair the proper way so people can actually sit on it. This pleases me and kind of makes me want to rearrange the living room. Darren might actually be on board with this idea.

I have two other half-yards of different patterns, so two more pillows will be made in the future. For the couch. I’m digging this neutral-with-pops-of-bright-color thing we have going on right now.

In addition to the chair, pillow, and lunch bag, I also modified two t-shirts. Compelling!

In non-decor related news, I have a four day weekend coming up. No plans, though. Maybe I’ll spend it all playing with my shiny new phone.
