1. Call your upholsterer and see if you can come down and observe a few large chairs being done. You might pick up a few time saving tips.
2. Use the curved needles. Your fingers will thank you.
3. Don't run out of band aids.
4. Don't choose a slick, silky fabric. Oops...that is exactly what I used. There it was tempting me in the fabric store. My head said NO but my heart said yes. Oh well, maybe next time it will be a breeze.
Hope you like it. Pillows, rug, lamp and accessories are next. Stay tuned.
