Advance Australia Fair

Ok so its not an "Australian" post at all but its most certainly not about the British either - lets get that clear from the beginning. I have already been told by two people that my chair is now a blight to Australian pride, but no un-patraotic intentions here ok- promise. I just like the colours...ok...

I did have a little heart flutter when I saw this material in spotlight and couldn't get it out of my head - nor did I buy any that day. Not till I have the perfect project was I going to buy any more new material (new rules dues to lack of space left).

My $5 chair rescued from the tip need some jazzing up so I spent 10 bucks on a section of the flag material. I did the project in my new Woman Cave, as a break from all the damn sorting and TA-DA!!

  1. Chair - $5
  2. Material - $15 with the calico extras
  3. Upholstery studs - $7
All in all quite the bargain - and quite a bit better looking than the original - so I think anyway.
