I'm proud that my skills as a canvas maker have translated to being able to do some basic furniture reupholstery. My Mom has the same mindset as I do, which makes doing these projects a lot of fun. We're both perfectionists and are good with our hands. She got the talent from her father, my Opa. It also saves a lot of money when you can fix stuff yourself.
This shows that one skill can easily be applied to other skills. Setting the fabric around the ottoman was the same exact process as stretching a canvas.
