Look What I Made

Isn't it pretty? My wonderful mother-in-law spent an afternoon helping me put this together. We even attached shelf liners on the bottom for grip. That way, we didn't need to put on strings so, they look more like dining room chairs than kitchen chairs. A really clever trick:-)

I am so proud of myself because although my email address is sewing@wi.rr.com, I don't sew:-) She was very patient with her remedial student and, I am going back on Thrursday to sew the other five:-) Wish me luck!

They are only going to cost me $20 total for all 6!! Normally, 4 would cost over $100!! With the money I saved, I need to get table linens to go with it:-) Or, I could get some new home supplies but maybe I will just celebrate with a cheese and wine party .

What do you guys think I should do?

Good job, Susie! I don't sew. Never have. My mom did not sew and therefore I did not learn from her.

Thanks for stopping by today. It is always good to hear from someone who did not have their little ones potty trained early! We may have it down by 4 yrs. :-)

Wow - great job... I don't sew either. My daughter wants to learn how. She joined the sewing club offered by the 4H, they have had 2 meetings in 6 mos. She is not learning very fast. LOL

good idea about the no-slip shelf-liners. Plus i am not a fan of the ties anyway. eventually, they wear out and rip off. looks great!
