My mom gave me a chair that used to belong to my great grandmother. It is very sentimental to me because it was in my parents house while I was growing up but over the years the upholstery gave out and it had a tear right in the front of it. It needed to be recovered and I have issues with spending lots of money on something I'm not sure about. I couldn't pick a fabric that I loved and I didn't want to pay an upholster $300 to recover the chair.
I came across a post on pinterest where a lady at Cottage and Vine recovered her chair with a drop cloth and I thought "I can do that".
I bought some fabric on clearance and started tearing apart the chair.
I kept the fabric I took off to use as a pattern and I took pictures as I went so I could remember what the chair looked like before.
My sewing machine broke right before I attempted this so I just made cording by using fabric glue. I used my husbands staple gun to put the seat of the chair on.

This picture of my youngest was taken while we were visiting market street in Charleston, South Carolina. I love that city and I like how it's reflected in his sunglasses. He was smiling because my husband and other son just showed up with some Ben and Jerry's ice cream!

One of my favorite blogs to read is Made (http://www.dana-made-it.com/). A few weeks ago she featured autumn crowns that she made with her children. I knew it was the perfect craft for my boys so we made them the next day and they were a hit. They are super easy to make and I got lots of fun pics of my boys wearing them. This was one of my favorites.
