I re-covered an old chair this week.
You know this chair, it was in your kitchen in the 1970's!
After a move this summer to a smaller home, it has taken a lot of sorting and tossing and yard sales and organizing and re-organizing and touching each possession and asking the questions: Do I like it, want it, need it, use it or have room for it? It has been a very freeing process. But I just couldn't toss this sweet little chair. Plus, I have some tools...

Girls with tools, gettin' 'er done. My husband is a carpenter, but I can never find a hammer or screwdriver when I need one! So I have my own cute little flowered hammer with the screwdriver hidden in side the handle. That's so he won't "borrow" it. I know he wants to... ;)
Have you sewn with laminate? It is regular cotton fabric with a thin vinyl coating. Not stiff or hard to sew like oil cloth or regular vinyl or naugahyde. And there is no fraying, which I love. No need to finish the edges because they're sealed with the laminate. And most designer laminate is a coordinate to regular cottons, which fact I also love.
Looks like these gals from my latest Snippets class had fun sewing with it too.
