Well, there is now A Sassy Pillow For The Bergère Chair With Attitude. If you missed the hair pulling, cuss word spewing, wine drinking saga you can catch up here at A Bergère Chair With Some Serious Attitude.
Before I get to the pillow, as pointed out by a reader, the Bergère chair is in fact NOT a Bergère but rather a Louis Armchair. Evidently, I don't know my Louis from a Bergère! So this post should be aptly titled A Sassy Pillow for the Louis Chair With Attitude.
Back to the business of making my sassy pillow.
The first thing I did was make a graphic in PicMonkey and reverse the image (mirror image). Months and months ago I bought some Lesley Riley Tap (Transfer Art Paper). What I didn't realize is that you need to use it with an inkjet printer. I have a color laser.
I keep a table top ironing board and travel iron handy in my sewing room. Saves me from having to run downstairs to the laundry room when I'm sewing. I used tweezers to remove the hot Transfer Art Paper.
I saved the Dud piping from the Bergère...ahem...Louis chair to reuse on the pillow. Happily I trotted down to my fabric bin and gasped when it wasn't there. A quick text to Mr. Frugalista only to discover he threw it out. HE THREW IT OUT people! Perfectly good and reusable piping went to the landfill. Shhhh, don't tell the recycle police because he brings me flowers...and he cooks most of the meals...and he cleans toilets!
So I calmed myself down and got to the task of making new piping with the one piece of fabric I had leftover. Then I sewed the piping onto the pillow back.
Next I sewed the two pieces together and voila, A Sassy Pillow for the whatever it's called chair with attitude!
When I don't feel like being sassy, I'll just flip the pillow over.
Who am I kidding, I'm a sassy kinda gal so it won't be flipped often. Only when serious guests come to visit.
If you ever come over for coffee or a glass of wine, remember you've been forewarned about that chair from hell.
