If you saw my latest post on this chair you probably noticed that I changed my mind about the fabric. Instead of the velvet I decided to go a much better fabric a few weeks ago. It is a upholstery fabric and it looks so much better than the previous fabric!
I also found a great ribbon for the chair. This is how I attached it.
I knew using glue for this was out of the question. I am actually not sure, but I think most ribbons on chairs like this one are attached with small nails. The problem with that is that you do not want the nails to be visible.
I managed to make the nails invisible by sneaking them in from the sides and hide them within the ribbon.
Do you see the little nail in there somewhere? I hope not.
The hardest part to get the ribbon around is the base of the chair’s back. Again, I am not sure how this is done correctly, but I solved it by folding the ribbon and sewing a few stitches.
Very happy with the result!
