Ambition

Honestly, sometimes I surprise myself. 

I am not an experienced sewer.

At all.

I want to be, so sometimes I pretend I am.  You know, I'm using the think system.  (Fast forward 6 (5:55) minutes in to this clip.  It's not the best link, but it was the best I could find!  Hopefully, you get what I'm talking about.)

Still, I know I have a lot to learn, so it surprises me when I look at something like this...

...and think, "Hey, I can take that cover off and make a pattern to recover it!"

I can?  Really?

I guess we'll see.

Here's where I'm at:  I've got a pile of foam (labeled so I know how to put it back together again) and a dissembled cover. 

I've also got a 3-year-old who is dying to sit on her new couch.  I sure hope I can do this!
