At the time of the pic, two chairs have been recovered in stripey goodness and I drafted a quick pattern (under the scissors) to make matching tiebacks for my lovely but boring black curtains. The leftover strip of fabric, after cutting the pieces for the seats, was just shouting to be used. Why not coordinate?
The only problem is I want vertical stripes and the left over isn't quite long enough in the correct direction for that but... a seam at the center fold might go unnoticed if I do it right at the edges of the stripes. Yes, I think that is the plan for tomorrow. Finish the chairs and then make those tiebacks happen.
