I am a bit of a fabric hoarder. When I discover old textiles that I like, I squirrel them away in my studio's supply closet. Eventually I put them to good use in small sewing projects, like my pennant banners. This morning, I searched through my fabric stash for a curtain panel I've saved for years. It has a wonderful apple pattern that I thought would be fun to use somehow in my new SoNo MarketPlace stall.
Autumn is fast approaching and apples are the perfect fall motif. So I decided to make some large swatch portraits to hang and sell in my space. Aren't they fun?
I transformed the remaining yardage into a gathered skirt for a small vintage cabinet. I plan to use this piece as the cash/wrap desk in my booth.
The fabric hides the back so it can face out toward the customer. The front, with its sliding doors and storage shelves, will face me. Now that this cabinet is all dressed up, I think it looks pretty sweet. Don't you?
