One of the club members came up with the project based on a show she attended in the past and led the class. Our assignment was to bring two contrasting fabrics. She created a pattern for the both a cardboard chair and the fabric pieces.
Here is a progress picture of the fabric pinned to a piece of foam to create pleats. After we found a look we liked, we sprayed with starch then dried with a hair dryer.
Here is a progress picture of the back of the chair.
And here is the finished project complete with a big bow.
