I Finished the Glider!

12 Dec

Hours of needlework, my fingertips shedding skin, my back tired – but I am happy with the results. The glider is finished!

Here’s my curved needle (oh how proud I was when I entered a store and asked where they had a curved needle – only to realize that it is, in fact, the actual name for this needle! It said so on the package) and one of the fabrics I used:

Here’s what the glider looked like when we got it (black and worn out):

Little by little, I transformed it:

And ta-daaaam!

    What an amazing job you did! My second hand glider is being stripped and repainted by my bloke but the cushions are just getting a wash!

      Thank you!
      this one was fake leather, so wash would’ve done nothing!
      I considered repainting it and decided that enough is enough šŸ˜‰
