Patch me up before you go, go.

Boys! The reason patches were invented. (Okay, so I actually have busted the knee out of a pair of pants within the past year, but that was an accident.)

Anyway. I like patching pants. It gets a little artsy. Sometimes.

Here is a sampling of some of my patch jobs:






New Butterfly Chair Cover

I have always thought I would like a butterfly chair. They are just too good for lounging. I found this one at a thrift store. The canvas cover on it was ripped in one corner. Obviously, Ace didn’t care. He drug it out of the closet several times to lounge. That probably helped it move to the top of my to-do list more quickly than it would have otherwise.


Recover. I used the canvas cover as a pattern. I have had this green upholstery material so long, that I’ve actually forgotten why I bought it. ! If I don’t remember, I probably don’t need to save it for whatever it was, right?

The green material coordinates very well with the first couch and loveseat that my husband and I bought when we got married. That set is dark green and located upstairs in the loft/TV room.

SIDE NOTE: Don’t you think the hippie chair goes very well with my shag rug? Well. I’m loving it whether you are or not. 🙂
