The Couch

The first, last & only piece of furniture I ever intend to sew. It started as a good idea. Keira loves the little couch at my mom's. I had some cushions from my grandmother's old sofa and plenty of fabric so why not, right? An old sheet from Abby and a pair of dress pants handed down from my grandfather went quite well together so that's what I went with.


Well, quite a few days and many a curse word later, there was what resembles a couch. I'll include a few production pics to give you an idea of how it went. My seam ripper got a lot of use. 3 times, I realized I had either missed a step or managed to do something backwards.



Well, I forgot to put something rigid in so the arms flop over. I also somehow had less than I measured out and had to add a panel to the back. We won't even begin to discuss the rest of where I went wrong.




But she likes it. I suppose that's all that matter, right? she
