A transformation.

Who would believe that this old pouffe could become this.

A year ago while mooching around Halesworth I saw a different shop.
It was called 'Chameleon,'  a pop up shop,  only there a week.
It was selling fabric and this fabric was in the cut offs bin for £10.
I could see that it would be the perfect fabric to do this. 
So all day yesterday with DH help I have recovered the old
The rain rained and the winds blew as I measured and sewed and
DH tapped in the upholstery tacks.
I was able to centre the bigger picture on the top of the seat, but to do the sides the same would have meant cutting the fabric into panels, and I didn't think there'd be enough.  
And I want some to cover the cushion on an old stool  that was my grandmothers, so probably 80 or so years old.
We are delighted with the finished item, and think it looks fantastic.
I expect there are loads of very talented bloggers out there
who can do similar, were you as happy with your result as we are?
I am so proud!

I love this. So satisfying to transform something and breathe new life into it.

The pouffe looks fantastic. That is a lovely fabric and a great bargain.
Halesworth is such a nice town to visit, some lovely independent shops.
