Pimp My Chair

I love my chair. Which is just as well as I would resent making new covers and the rest for it if I didn't.

Red for the arms and a lovely aubergine for the seat and back. I've only got the arms done so far but they bode well.
The cord has a little stretch to it so they fit nicely, despite my bodgetastic approach to soft furnishings. I also found a suitable hook for hanging scissors on.
Awesome - happy snoopy dance once I'd screwed that into place. And then there is the pin cushion. I decided to go all out on this and make a bespoke one. I always loved these segmented ones and found this tutorial for making one.
I absolutely adore it. I chain stitched around the edge to hide the dodgy seaming I'd done too.
