Gib complained that I'm always making things for everyone else but him. He said that his computer chair was boring. He needed a chair with more, something that reflected his personality. He wanted me to pimp it out. So I said "Fo sho, dawg!"
Gib says his computer chair is way too boring... y'know wut I mean?
I draped the fabric over the chair and kind of hacked away at it with scissors until I got the right shape. To keep it in place, I cut what looked like coat tails in the camo fabric so it wraps underneath the chair, around the centre pole and attachs to the bottom of the white fleece fabric at the front. Gib also goes by the nickname of Saru, which means monkey, hence the monkey applique. The black fabric used in the monkey's "fur" is a light canvas recycled from an old bag that I had worn out. It took me about a weekend to make. And Gib is happy with the results (fo shizzle!).
Thanks for dropping in!
A little about me: I'm at the tail end of my PhD, so as an escape from all the science stuff, I like to sew, cook and muck about in the garden. I'm always finding and doing things and forgetting how I got there, so my little blog space is all about noting down my ideas, inspirations, successes and failures to help me remember - and maybe they'll be helpful to you too!
I live in the suburbs of Melbourne with my partner, Gib, two cats, three chickens and two mischievous pet rats. Occasionally I'll blog about them and my other passion: karate.
I love suggestions, questions and comments, so please don't be shy! Thanks for dropping by!
What's with the goat? Goats aren't sheep: they are willful, independent and love getting out and doing their own thing. They like to consume anything - food, shrubbery and even fabric. Much like me, really (although in more of a metaphorical sense).
Why is the goat in a coat? Not sure. It just rhymed.
