I have been redecorating our lounge room as it is almost nine years since we moved into the house and I decorated the lounge when we first moved and now feel it is time for a change.
The lounge is two steps down so the wall behind the lounge suite is tall and therefore needs a large print behind. Previously we had a dark orange feature wall with three covered canvases.
I forgot to take a before photo but here is a photo of the wall after the canvases had been taken down.
I have recovered the canvases and painted the feature wall.
The lounge room looks completely different now. My next step is to make some cushions. I have knitted one cover and have bought some fabric for the second one.
We are hoping to buy two wing-backed chairs but the store is out of stock at the moment so we will need to be patient. New carpet is the next step.

This is my third go at re-purposing or recycling a man’s shirt. This time I didn’t bother unpicking I just cut each of the sections along the seams. I used the same pattern as I used previously but in a larger size.
I am delighted with how it turned out.
Detail of the collar and the original label attached.

Remember when i said I was going to see what I could produce with
fabric? Well I have just made something else. a metre of Marimekko
and decided I could use up some of my left over scraps. a pattern on the website of A Very Purple Person
The bag is reversible, the next picture shows the inside which can be used as the outside too.
I still have a couple of small scraps left so there is probably one more project left.
