Yes I did it... I used the Black & White Stripe Fabric again & "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."
This classic movie quote (which actually deviates from the book's original wording, which drops the "frankly") inspired my project for a blog hop I'm doing with Online Fabric Store & Premiere Prints. Each of the bloggers involved were randomly given a Classic Novel & asked to create a project using the book as inspiration & Premiere Prints Fabrics as the material. Fun right?!
Welcome to those of you that are hopping over from Jen Rizzo's lovely blog! I loved her take on Little Women. If you haven't guessed yet, I was given Gone with the Wind. So yes, I did it. I used my favorite classic pattern. Again. And as Miss Scarlett would say,"Fiddle Dee Dee."
Being a Georgia Girl for most of my life, I am all to familiar with the novel & the film Gone with the Wind. Goodness, even my middle name is Ashley (& Tara was on the list of potential first names I've been told), so it was quite fitting that I received this book as my inspiration.
I love reupholstering chairs. They are a relatively easy project & make such a dynamic change once they are completed. Opting for a new & classic look on an old chair, I used the Premiere Prints Stripe in Black & White as my seat fabric. After stapling the perimeter, I decided to switch things up & added a simple cotton twill ribbon with spaced antique brass tacks to give it a more formal look.
So thanks to all who have sat through my endless projects with this fabric.... I truly adore it. Be sure to head on over to the uber talented KariAnne at Thistlewood Farm to see her genius take on a classic.
