Ga Ga for Gingham

16 Dec

There is something about gingham that is true innocence. Probably because I relate gingham to my childhood as it played a starring role in most of my clothing — and also seems like a fabric my grandmother used in her house or at least I have a vague memory of gingham cafe curtains in her kitchen.

It’s got that country-comfy feel to it. The oversized gingham fabric for the sofa slipcover is really sweet and I think it’s such a smart paint technique for the stairs — it makes me think this would be a fun approach for the back stairs in the house in Boston.

I made the blue gingham chair covers for the kitchen chairs in the place in Boston — I didn’t sew them as well as my mother would have but it worked just fine for me at the time.
