Eric and I bought a new couch from a local store called Area, about a month ago but it only showed up last week. It is the most adult-like piece of furniture we own, also one of the few brand-new, never been used pieces of furniture. We opted for a neutral gray/brown color that would mask animal fur. We chose a tightly woven fabric that would hopefully deter cat claws and we chose a nice slim, modern design that would fit our small living room. We lost a little bit of napping space but lost no sitting space.
I have been sitting on some wonderful prints since my trip to Minneapolis last month. Somehow, my innate color matching skills worked out wonderfully and the prints I chose work perfectly with the new couch’s color. A friend of mine took me to Crafty Planet where I picked up some these unique prints.
The first pillow I made has a flap and button closure using a piece of black ribbon. The buttons I also found at JoAnn’s – I picked them because they are made from recycled plastic.
