Hi, it’s Kendra here again on this wonderful Tuesday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I know I did with the launch of the Cricut Expression 2 with HSN! It was great chatting with so many of you…I hope I inspired you to take the plunge and purchase the CE2. You are going to just love it!
Design on a Dime is the theme this week and boy oh boy did I have the perfect fixer-upper! I had purchased on old vanity desk last summer that came with a chair. The chair was upholstered with the most hideous awful brown fabric and my youngest daughter refused to even have it in her room. If I put it in there she would carry it back to the garage! Well, did I fix that today! I started out with a piece of cotton quilt batting and drew a straight line on it, down the center. I then took strips of fabric that coordinate with her room and started sewing them in random order using the straight line as a starting point to keep the sewing straight.
Using the Cricut Expression 2, Black, Green and Hot Pink Fabric and Heat-N-Bond, I cut the cat from the Cricut American Alphabet out at 10 inches in.
Black Cross Stitch Thread was then used to Blanket Stitch around the Cat. Once this was complete, the cat was centered on the seat and using a Power Shot Stapler and the seat board was upholstered. I still am going to be painting the chair white…but that is for another day!
When I went to put the chair away, Anika told me to be careful with it, she did not want it ruined! I believe that means I had SUCCESS! What do you all think?
