Step 1: Drape the muslin over the car
(Big thanks to my in-laws, who moved to India this year and sold me their car, with which I'm doing this project!)
Step 2: Pin the muslin to fit snugly
Step 3: Sew the seams in Cheryl's amazing studio full of puppets (sewing machine not pictured)
Step 4: Admire the items her wonderful daughters collected and shared with me (ladies after my own heart!)
I'm really excited about this project. My slipcover is going to be covered with both painted images of cranes and some three-dimensional birds made out of sheets of corrugated semi-transparent plastic. I'm shooting for something translucent, like vellum. Here's a picture of the sketches and a tiny model; the finished version will probably include some color.
