AN ANTIQUE CHAIR MAKEOVER WITH CRAZY QUILT

This is my little antique chair that I am taking to the 15 Mile Antique Alley that will be going on this coming weekend. I will be going over to take a load today. Will start setting up on Wednesday and Thursday. The sale starts in Cleburne on Hwy. 4 and goes to Maypearl. People are set up on the side of the road in front yards and in pastures. If you are looking for a good time this weekend come on over. I am setting up on Main street in the 700 block. The house is gray and it is between two restrants. One is a Mexican restrant. This is a pic of the way it looked when I took it out of the shed.

I had to put a bottom in it. So I used a piece of plywood that I had in the shed.


And these are some pics of the crazy quilt seat cushion. I couldn't embellish it too much with it being a seat. It all had to be flat embellishments.


I made the little pansy and took the blue bird pattern from and old vintage scarf I had.



Did a lot of feather stitchs in here. I love feather stitches.


The girl is from a piece of material I had. And the green lace came off a dress I bought just for the lace. The pink flower lace is a piece that I hand painted with dye. I loved the way it turned out. And I have six more of these chairs. Maybe I'll get some more done one of these days. I hope you enjoyed my chair and if you are around drop by the flea market and see me.

Have a great day. Hugs, Pat

Hi Pat, You have such talent. The chair is stunning. Someone else said it was too pretty to sit on and I agree. I can tell that for you making the seat is a labor of love and talent with outstanding results! Hope you had a fantastic weekend of sales.

Pat,
This little chair turned out so cute, even cuter in person. Did you sell it? I'll bet you & Charlene had fun today shopping. I wish I could take a day & junk. Things are crazy here, & with the kids getting out of school even crazier! Miss U Lisa

Hi Pat. It was so nice meeting you at Whipp Farm during Antique Alley. We share so much in common, including the love of junking the uncommon and abandoned. I have just this day looked at your blog and am so glad I did. I recognize some of your favorites. You have a very sweet blog and I hope you will visit mine so that you can see just how much we have in common. I even took some pictures of Whipp and posted them. Please lets keep in touch.
