Welcome to Kate Ronan Upholstery
Inspired by artists celebrating Black History Month, I've pulled out a piece that has been waiting in the wings for this moment.
Check back during the month to see and read about progress.
There are SIXTY BUTTONS in this tiny piece! One button for every year I've been alive.
No wonder the project had to wait until now...
Fortunately, the foam detached for MUCH easier tufting.
Pieces of cardboard secured the rusted, metal buttons in place.
In a slow and painstaking process, pieces of fabric are cut and tufted together.
I'll either have to go back to Brooklyn for more fabric or use something else at each end... Not enough cool stuff!
