I went from something like this (I would take a picture of my old one, but I'm too darn lazy to go upstairs and take a picture of the heavy monster and I don't want to mess with my blogging groove):
I upgraded to this!!:
Singer Curvy. I'm high-tech yo!
What having curves means...lots of sewing projects this summer! I can't wait!! I'm jumping in my seat just thinking about it all! Knowing what a frugal girl I am, you wouldn't expect me to just go out and buy this heavenly creation! Umm..no. I found it for about half the price at my local Tuesday Morning outlet. I think it's originally like $400! I got my Curvy girl for $180 with tax!Woo. How's that for a deal?
A clean dark brown paint job on those legs (which I may completely change) and some crisp clean upholstery and I'm sure he'll be good as new. He might even have to change his name
Now, I only have to select some fabric....ugh, such a difficult task. I think I'll be needing some help.
I could just go with a nice white to match the couch. Maybe something like this:
or something like the two below
or something like this, which looks a bit like this
I'm kinda leaning towards the last option. I love the neutral tones and the geometric pattern. At $8.99 a yard and a 40% off coupon, it will definitely be a deal.
What do you think? Any suggestions?
