The Quality Control Team

It rained all day yesterday.  Instead of doing what I had planned for the day (which would have involved hauling furniture in an open pick up truck), or working outside in the garden, I sat at the sewing machine for a little while and put together a slipcover for this ottoman that's been living in my stash.



You can see that it meets with Alice and Dorothy's exacting standards for quality and comfort.

I was going to paint the legs, but now I've decided not to.  Whoever buys this at the Lucketts Spring Market can paint them, or leave them the way they are.

(Note to self:  Gotta remember to wash and iron the cover before I take it to the market, in case folks are allergic.)

They are so cute! I have a large ottoman I'm taking from my Mom's and it will need recovering. It will be my first attempt at such a thing....one of these days! :)

Aaaaahchoooo! Unfortunately, that would be me and my kids.

Do your kitties lay on the fabric as you pull it through the machine like my McGillicudy does? It makes sewing a bit more challenging! LOL!
I'm glad I'm not allergic to cats because I would have them anyway. I don't know what I would DO without my fuzzy friends!

The slipcover is lovely. I wouldn't paint the legs either.

Alice and Dorothy are a pretty good team, and they seem to agree, and from where I'm sitting, I do too!

So funny! You probably could have predicted that would happen.

Nice slipcover for the ottoman. Alice and Dorothy look quite content. It's nice they helped you out with quality control.
