Where Does Inspiration Come From?

Several years ago, I purchased what turned out to be my favorite chair . . .



I got some extra yardage of the fabric with the intention of making a matching foot stool. That never happened. So as much as I enjoyed having this gorgeous fabric stacked neatly in my stash, it seemed a shame not to use it. But for what? I decided since I so love my Wing Chair and it being Skellie Month, maybe a Skellie Doll would enjoy having one too . . .


Not quite as sophisticated as the original, but this mini Wing Chair was lots of fun to make and the Skellie loves it!

So perfectly proportioned. I love how you planned out the back to fit the design. My friend has the same fabric on her living room furniture--love it! ~Roberta
