Red Gingham Couch Makeover


One of this summer's big projects in the apartment has been redoing a couch we bought on craigslist last fall. After weeks of hand-sewing and hot-gluing--no sewing machine here--I'm thrilled that this is finished. Mom bought me about five yards of the red gingham fabric for my birthday in May. I haven't made new pillows yet. 'Am all sewn-out, and these will do for now. 'Declaring this done.



Done, done, done.

And Stuffed approves too.
