Repurposing a Sewing Mistake
Positive #1: I completed my VERY FIRST DIY SEWING PROJECT!!!
Negative: Turns out that I measured completely wrong for the vinyl fitted table cover, so I had to change my project and make vinyl stool covers (I didn't want to waste the vinyl afterall!).
Positive #2 & #3: I was able to recycle the incorrectly measured vinyl (no waste!), AND I kept my promise to complete my project by the weekend!
What You'll Need
Thread (matching your vinyl)
Vinyl (any ol' tablecloth will do, or you can pick some up at the fabric store)
Flexible Measuring Tape
How To Guide:
1. Roughly cut the large vinyl piece (or tablecloth) in half so as to loosely cover the two stools. Cut a piece of tape, roll it to make it sticky on all sides, and place it in the center of your stool. Try to center the vinyl half (right-side down) as much as possible before sticking it to the tape. That way, when you are making marks or cuts to the vinyl, it doesn't move off the stool.
Next, I will make a matching cover for the table -- this time measuring correctly!! It's funny how much more you learn by making mistakes!
If anybody follows my pattern, please post pictures!
