Little Houndstooth Chair

Remember the kind of frightening looking little green chair I shared with you a little while ago?

My client chose a gorgeous houndstooth fabric that she wanted two of these matching chairs to be re-upholstered in.

Here's the-little-chair-that-could now:

 Here's her cute little back side.
 And her pillow-less front side.
 I think she looks darling with a bright and bold colored pillow like the one I made for my front porch.
 You have to see this fabric up close.  It really is so gorgeous and is so thick and durable for upholstery.
This fabric is made by Robert Allen, called Square Pegs Noir.  It's got a hefty price tag (regularly $80/yard at Joann) but is on sale for half price right now.

I will share the full tutorial on this upholstery job when I have finished the second chair.  I sort of failed to take pics as I worked on this one.  I'll be better on the next chair, promise.  :)

Thanks for reading!
