Patchwork Armchair

Patchwork Armchair

Christmas came early for me!

I’ve been collecting upholstery weight fabric samples and scraps to re cover this chair myself for quite a while, too long – Sooooo, I decided to treat myself and get it done professionally by local upholsterer Cecelia, in time for Christmas. She very kindly said she’d squeeze it in and there was a bit of a panic getting the fabric pieced in time for her but it’s here, with time to spare!

And yes, the chair was from a charity shop 🙂

Happy Christmas!

    Hi, I”ve just stumbled upon your blog and I liked the patchwork armchair. It looks great, there’s not much patchwork furniture out there, so it’s always great when you see it! Hope you enjoy using it! -Suzy sparrowe
