Freelance Seamstress II

Better Homes and Gardens, Special Interest Publications, Before and After, Spring 2007. This was probably my biggest job with Meredith Publications. The project consisted of an outdoor patio with four different color schemes. I created the cushion covers for the outdoor furniture, pillows and curtains. (Click on the picture to close up view.)

Freelance Seamstress

Creative Home, Spring 2008 issue - a Better Homes and Gardens Creative Collection magazine. I have worked as a freelance seamstress for Meredith Publications. In this issue of Creative Home, I sewed the ottoman skirt and cushion, window swag and checked pillows. Also in this issue, is a closet makeover in which I made the bench cushion, small green pillow and the white roman shade.

Slip Cover

This is the second slip cover that I have made for this overstuffed chair. Some chairs have a nice shape for slip covers. The ottoman came from a different furniture set. The new color goes better with my current decor.
