Snip, Smooth and Stretch!

Dining Chairs

A very exciting week, well for me anyway!

So, calico cover fitted and the chairs have now reached top cover stage which has been cut and now needs to be stretched and smoothed over (to avoid any sagging) and then tacked down.

calico cover – ready for the top cover and wadding sandwich!


Had a day workshop, so I cracked on with my other project…concentrated on the lid/seat section of the ottoman/chaise. This project requires a modern approach, so it’s time to get down with the foam…it’s quick work compared to the traditional hair layers…Hessian scrim tacked, foam fitted and glued, wadding glued, calico cover fitted, wadding cut and placed… top cover placed in position and is semi fitted!
