Dragon Wicker Chairs
This was a custom order from a client who had bought the wicker furniture at an estate sale. It was old but in fairly decent condition after some cleaning up. He asked if I could add blue trim to the wicker and then give it some cushions and a throw. The interesting part was that he wanted it to have a dragon theme if at all possible. I was able to weave some blue ribbon into the edge of the chairs to cover some damage, but the dragon part had me stumped for a little bit until I remembered i had a fat quarter of dragon themed fabric from the Hoffman's oriental challenge collection. I thought it was way out of scale until I did a fussy cut of one dragon's head and draped it just so. If you look at the chair from the front it's not noticeable until you turn the chair to the side and see this ferocious creature looking back at you.
