In my quest to acquire the skills to build a couch I need to learn something about how to upholster furniture. Last week I made a couple foot stools to work on. The old Bernina sewing machine is up to the task of sewing the heavy fabrics. I'm getting more comfortable working with the upholstery fabrics. I had assumed that I would be using a random patchwork style of upholstery but as I went to work on these foot stools I found myself doing patchwork that reflects the shape of the base of the stools. I liked what was happening and went with it.
Etsy button shop. In these photos the buttons are not yet attached. I'm still playing with where and how to position them.
