A Little Shabby

Hi everyone.  I'm doing a little extra blogging this week.  I have been a little busy with some sewing projects to push the January blahs away.  It's been cold and windy this week, so it's been nice to be up in my sewing room all nice and warm.  Anyways, here is my little project.  I have this cute little antique desk in my kitchen that holds all the bills and important stuff.  It sits in a little corner of the kitchen. I have an old chair that did have a cushion on it but after a while it got a little stained and well used.  Here is the before picture:
 I had found some burlap bags at a flea market in the spring and one bag had a cute checkerboard design on it.  I decided that I wanted to use that bag so I traced my old cushion on some paper and used that for my pattern.  I wanted to dress it up just a little so I had some cream fringe that I sewed along the edges.  I used burlap for the bottom of the pad and added some ties to the back of the cushion to be able to attach to my little chair.  The fringe adds just a little bit of fancy with the shabby look of the burlap.
 So what do you think?  Until next time, Dianne.........
