Little Imp's armchair is complete, with little matching pillows. What fun I've had. Check back to Recovering an Armchair Part One for the chair used to look like. I ended up replacing only the bits in green - the front skirt, arm rests and a piece under the main cushion & kept the original white of the old chair cover for the rest. The embellishing is made up of a combination of free form machine embroidery, Heat-&-Bond iron on adhesive to attach fabric pieces, hand stitching, felt & buttons.
But for now I might just let the pictures do the talking.
