So, the kitchen has become his domain.
We have a set of wire mesh drawers in the kitchen and it was just bugging my husband that you could see right through them to the contents inside.
He picked out a home dec fabric that matches the colors of the floor tiles with some red to pick up the red accents in the kitchen.
I used the home dec fabric and interfaced it with a fusible heavy weight stabilizer, worked off a paper pattern I made from the drawer fronts. The biggest challenge was in how to attach them to the wire drawers in a way that did not look sloppy or home made. After a bit of thought I made a mock up with a size 0 hook from a package of hooks and eyes. It worked great.
I hand sewed on two hooks to the upper part of each drawer front liner and squeezed them closed with a pair of pliers.
Final outcome: my hubby was very, very happy so I call it a success!
Not the most exciting project to work on but well worth making the hubby happy!
Tonight I'm off to m y Babylock dealer for my first class on my Evolution. :)
