I have been thinking about replacing my old beatup Ikea ottoman covers for a while. Originally, I was going to do patchwork African prints, but the thought of a time consuming project that the children might
My basement color scheme is red & blue so I went with denim, which I already had in my stash. Some quick measuring and cutting and I was done in a flash.

|I told Jr to come over and take a picture, and he sat right on the new one, lol! |
(Off Topic: any advice on getting him to STOP sucking his thumb??? His teeth are gonna cancel out his college fund, lmao!!)
|Finished project + Yardage fron the stash = Happy Me! |
Although this was a small & quick project, it really has made a big impact on the color scheme in the basement. I have some ideas to refresh my couch next.
Now to answer the last few questions from my comments section:
From Aminat: How do you do the photo board?
I generally use PowerPoint 2007(home) or 2010 (work), if I need to touch up the picture or remove the background I make the edits with Photoshop.
From Sheila: What will be made from the Sara fabric?
I purchased the wax print with my kitchen in mind. now that I have gottne it home I found another wax print I had is a better match. So it will end up in various projects - garment and home dec.
From Dei: Do you ever go to Sarah's fabric across the street?
I go to Sarah's every few months to collect a cut or three of the 6yard wax prints (thanks to a post you did a while back). When I can get in there alone, I'll be able to explore the rest of the bolts, that store is NOT safe for children, lol.
It's a good thing Starbucks is right on the corner, I get ADD overload in that place. I used to go to Vina Fabrics also across the street from Hancock's (other side) but I havent been there in a few years.
