Day 31: 31 Day Challenge – Finishing a Damon Winter Inspired Chair

Monday, January 31st, 2011

 work. A friend gave me a card last year with this design.  The minute I saw it I knew I was going to do my own interpretation of the piece and put my own spin on it.

Here is the chair partly completed.  I added some additional batting to the seat and back of the chair to make it more cushiony.

For the original photo the photographer captured

but mine was done with ribbon.  I changed the silhouette somewhat by making the image feminine rather than a masculine one.  I also left out the woman in the foreground as I felt I wanted a simpler design. I also changed the color scheme.  In the picture below you can see the detailing that I did to the silhouette.  I created lines with my stitches that both reinforce the image and also add another decorative element.

Day 31: Finishing a Damon Winter Inspired Chair:

Wow, it’s day 31!  I made it . . . in many sense of the word!  I am so thrilled to finally be done, but I also feel like I have a renewed sense of my skills as a maker, artist and designer.   This project was the longest project of all the projects I’ve completed.  In all I think this project has taken me 6 hours to finish, but it looks great and I am very happy with it.  Every once in awhile it’s good to flex your crafty muscles and this one was a fun, rewarding challenge, for sure.

Thank you everyone for reading and sharing this process with me.  I am curious to know what project people would most like to know how to do themselves?  Please let me know which if any, of these projects would you most like to see turned into a tutorial.

In case you didn’t read my fi

bout this project . . . this post is part of a 31 day challenge I am doing to bring more creativity, stories and solutions to my life.  I have been using my creativity almost exclusively for work in the recent past and for the month of January I will creating things for my personal life, talking about them and taking pictures.I would love input from readers as to which project you enjoy the most and if I get enough comments on one particular project I’ll turn it into a tutorial after the 31 day challenge of crafting, stories and solutions is over.  So please let me know what you like!
