You can find some lovely needlepoints in French car boot sales and second hand shops all over France. It’s harder to find large ones to make clothes so I was really glad to find these ones. I used different needlepoints on the back and lined the skirt with red silk, then used a ribbon for the waistband. I used this youtube link to make the pattern:
Metal machinist chair covered in French and Viennese needlepoints with a hessian backing. If you’re looking for similar chairs then the gigantic Newark International Antiques Fair would be a good place to find one, next fair is on 18th and 19th August http://www.iacf.co.uk/newark
Bonjour mes amies! So sorry for the very long delay in posting anything……..here we go, a new project that I’ve been working on. I bought this comfortable old armchair at a car boot sale here (a vide greener) and covered it with a lovely old linen sheet, I’m quite pleased with my effort. Don’t look too closely though or you’ll see all the mistakes!
