I visited an antique shop and left with an arm chair, free of charge. The shop was closing down and the owner was happy to get rid of the furniture.
She also had fabric for sale which was perfect for dressing an arm chair. So without previous experience I decided to try to change the fabric.
I used a needle for sewing in leather. Every single stitch was a struggle.
Despite the struggle I am glad I tried, and I will probably do it again.
