One craft I remember my mother doing was reupholstering my desk chair in my bedroom.
The original was a lovely cream textured cover but you could just imagine how long that would stay looking nice in a grubby teenage bedroom.
The fabric she chose was this nice black tapestry style. The offcuts followed us around for years and I’d always wanted to do something with it.
Around the same time she covered the chair I made myself a needle book which I still use today. But there remained a sizable scrap.
This is where the joys of spending hours on Pinterest proves itself useful. Inspiration struck and BAM skirt.
