Project Started

Today I picked up the trim that I needed for my project so it was time to get this started, it will be a Chenille Tablecloth and I am so excited that I will finally get the vintage look that I wanted for my table.

It came to me in a light bulb moment that a Chenille Curtain material would be perfect if the width was right, why oh why didn’t I think of that 27 years ago is beyond me as I used to make all of my own curtains. I headed over to Terry’s Fabrics and there it was the perfect material to make the long wanted cover for my table Woven Chenille Fabric Kensington.

The hardest part to get started was finding the right trim and believe me I searched long and hard but found it on my own doorstep in our local haberdashery, they didn’t have enough as I needed 8 metres of it but they kindly ordered it in for me.

So I made the cut tonight, it has been a few years since I did any fabric sewing and I was more than apprehensive on cutting the fabric but it cut like a dream with my steadfast Fiskers shears, I even used my Tim Holtz ruler and managed to dig out my tailors pencil.

I will post my progress as I go along. Isn’t it all so luxurious?
