These were built on bases that used to be the armrest covers of a couch. The backsides were relatively pristine. The fronts, not so much. I like the fabric so much that I have idle fantasies of taking a razor to the side that faces that wall.
I will certainly skin it like a beast when we are through with it, boil it clean and make great things.
I like doing this one so much that when I found the other armrest cover in with the "to dye" bunch, I pulled it out and started a twin, fraternal, not identical. Call this one "Brave beat the downtrodden Mets, double header". Yes, there will be more french knots.
Instead, I wasted the morning trying to master Jim's old cell phone (mine came over on the Ark and is failing). I was happy to be able to stitch anything after all that useless thumbing. Useless because later in the day I was told that, through a chain of loved one's upgrades, I would be given a gently used Blackberry. Just what I need.
We'll see what the day brings weather-wise after lunch.
