My husband put together the cutting table for us and drew the pattern template of the restaurant cushions for the new job. I was at our industrial machine stitching up the sample and then
once our work got the thumbs up from the company we're subcontracting for, my husband took his turn at the machine. He's a trained upholsterer, but hasn't plied this trade for many a year. This job allowed us to put our skills to work as well as being a reminder of when we were dating. I taught my husband how to sew way back when we were college students. He took to it like a duck to water and we discovered just how well we can work together.
I'm pleased to say that we still work well together. This upholstery job most likely won't be our last. It's good to be back in the work room together involved in an area we both love - creating with fabric.
*The above photo is a peek at the first double set of cushions I stitched up from the pattern my husband drew up. We're almost finished with this first contract and I hope to show you photos of the cushion covers filled out with their foam inserts. It's hard to give you the idea of what the finished product looks like when all I have is the empty covers to show at this point.
