Before & After: A charming little Varanda in the concrete jungle

On my stays in Sao Paulo, I try to fit some time to go to Bello Quilt and get some sewing classes. So far, I have done pillows (12 and counting) a duvet cover for my son's crib.
Currently, I'm working on more pillows and some roman shades. I will try my best to do some photo tutorials.
Cida, the owner and teacher,  is an amazing teacher and friend, and very perfectionist! Her bags, children clothes, quilt covers are just works of art!

My last project was to replace my Ikea outdoor chair covers for something more colorful and interesting!

Here is the result:                        



The fabrics are outdoors fabrics that I bought here in Sao Paulo in the garment/fabric district. I still have plenty left, if anyone is interested it costs $25.00/yard.


  1. Wow, what a difference a little fabric makes! Too cute! I'd love for you to share this at my link party. The very first one is this Friday, Jan 31st, at FlyingC-DIY.com. Hope to see you there!

    1. Thank you, Cori for stopping by. Besides the fabric I replaced the foam as well, and it really made a huge difference! Count with me at your linking party!
