Anna's new bench

This is the bench I saw in my grand-daughter's hot pink and green bedroom.  It just didn't go with her decor.
I had bought a remnant at  Their remnants are half price and I can buy good quality decorator fabric at a good price and they have been offering $4.95 shipping which is great for heavy fabric.  The fabric I had was called Retro pink and green.  The following is a picture of the fabric

Pretty bright, isn't it?

The following pictures show the progress of making the slipcover.
As you can see, I added cording which always adds to the finished slipcover.

I lined the entire slipcover.  Just seems to hang better when I use a lining.

I took it to Anna's house on Tuesday and when she came home from school she thanked me for her new bench.  

DT Doodles-2013 entry

Another sketch from KiwiLane DT Doodles-2013 week 43

I used the following templates:

Sunnybrook Lane 1A & 1B
Rings 2 & 3
Bracket 1T
Accents 1T

My next purchase is going to be the large Brackets templates.  These templates would be used often.
Also, regular accents templates were used and I don't see that they are for sale anymore.  I also like the idea of having the mat templates.  I also think they would be useful in designing the layouts.

The following is the layout that I made using this sketch:

I always have fun creating with these templates.
