The Victorian Nursing Chair -Day 7

Today I have been stitching. Then stitching. And I followed this with some stitching.

The result? A lovely firm border to the seat which will withstand many many years of use. Tomorrow I will be finishing this off with some more stitching just for good measure.

 

i finally tamed all that coir and got the pad into the basic shape required

 

Through-stuffing-ties stop your coir being pinched from the middle as your stitches draw coir to the edges

 

Don’t look at my muffin top! 3 rows of blind stitching start to build the height of the pad and add strength

 

Tomorrow an edge roll will complete the stitching. I love this view

My hands are dropping off. Feel free to send aid in the form of hand cream and chocolate.
