My Storefront with My Vintage Chenille Bedspread Slipcovered Creations

I just had to take a picture of my storefront with all the lovely slip covered chairs I made with vintage chenille bedspreads and lovely rose fabrics. Most are for orders from my online shop at ETSY.COM . I will soon be making a few sofas as well. The weather has been beautiful , so I have been bringing them all out to show off the the world (or at least Union Street). The blue, yellow and white pieces on the right were made for a customers 90 year old mom. She is moving into her new apartment next week and these will be a lovely surprise for her. It was my pleasure to make them. A very special endeavour indeed. Her inspiration for me was a wonderful designer, Makenzie Childs. She mixes fabrics and trims in a lovely way. Her upholstered pieces are whimsical and wonderful. When i delivered them today, My client was so thrilled. She said they came out even better than she ever could have imagined. I was thrilled !! The next order I will be making is a wing back chair made from a clients Mothers bedspread. It is a beautiful bubble gum pink wedding ring design with beautiful thick fringe trim. She has passed awhile back and her daughter is so pleased to have this as a wonderful memory of her. Yet another very important and meaningful project, I am honored to have the privilege. I would love to make some thing for you. See more of my pieces at big hugs to all...:-)


  1. They are beautiful - wish I still had my blue and white wedding ring chenille bedspread - but I loaned it and never got it back. You do a fantastic job on the chairs - are they slip covered or actually upholstered?

  2. I love your work, very inspirational, I will be definately be visiting regularly

  3. n cotton size will matter and it all must do with the length of the cotton fibres. The conditions in Egypt turn out the longest fibres (more than one.5 inches) and this suggests they're stronger duvet covers
    and finer, giving the sensation of softness.bed linen
