Time I plan to work on this today? 2PM-6PM then I HAVE to do homework.
I stopped work on the ottoman last night because something about it just did not feel right about it and I had worked on it far tooooooo long (>12 hours). I did not like the fact that the button was not sunken down enough no matter how tight I pulled it and I wanted to sleep on the question of whether or not I was going to put top stitching on the design or not. I like that in the original but wasn’t sure if that was going to be too over the top for this one.
I don’t want to make it so ornate that people are afraid to sit on it and I don’t want the grand kids or Bear pulling out the stitches either (I would kill them). The stitches will give it that taste of ethnicity though and that’s what I wanted. Then there is the question of what to use yarn or thread? I will decide on that task last. So much to consider.
I figured out the button problem. I have to make a hole for the button to sink into. That meant I had to remove the sewn on button and the cover and then cut a hole. That made me a little nervous.
After all that…still was not happy with it AND now the center circle looks REALLY uneven
I AM DONE WITH THIS!! I will work on painting the legs and putting on the trim work another day…
Mt grand kids call my ottoman the tomato chair. LOL!!!
