Fabric Find


This morning, I went to the church flea market that I mentioned last weekend.  My aim was to find fabric or craft items which I could use.  They had quite a lot of fabric and I had to dig through boxes under the counter, but it was worth the effort.  I bought this piece of upholstery fabric for $3.00.

The design is Delihla by Kingsway fabrics and features a pretty daisy design on a pale blue background.  When I measured it, I was pleased to find that I got 2.8 metres.  

One of the projects that I have in mind is to recover the chair pads for our dining room set.  I made the original covers about 18 years ago, so it is certainly time for a change.  I haven't calculated the amount of fabric required, but I am fairly confident that I should have a sufficient amount for this project.

Such a prety blue colour, Marie and the daisies stand out so well against it. It will look lovely covering chair pads:)
