A little Pouf gets some sophistication!

This cheap little foam pouf came to me with the clients recently purchased “fun” fur. She liked the size but she wanted the pouf shorter. I suggested the horizontal stripes on the sides and pretty much gave her the quartered top. I also put a piece of Masonite in the base to add weight to the foam and to give me someplace tie off the button.

It turned out to be a very sophisticated little hassock.

BTW… A pouf is more rounded in nature, not unlike an older homosexual. A hassock, is constructed like more of a large floor pillow. This is by nature more of a hassock then a pouf.

Had fun dying these TOMS!!! They are to be auctioned off at the Metro Galleries in Bakersfield this Friday. They are a women’s size 6-1/2 if you are interested in bidding.
The other shoes shown are color tests I did. Fortunately, I have a husband who will gladly wear 1 green shoe and 1 brown shoe. Gotta love him!

Upholster it and they will sit…

I am one happy upholsterer! 🙂
The Limey Desk Chair has sold!
I have 5 of my pieces in a show at Metro Galleries in Bakersfield and I have several boutiques in Palm Springs interested in selling my chairs. It feels great to have some recognition beyond my friends who love me. I can’t wait to make more!!! I already have fabric on the rack dying!
