Description

New slipcover for chair! I got the fabric (tan ticking stripe) at the bargain price of $3 a yard, and it's been sitting in my sewing room for months. Finally buckled down and got it done! The chair was originally slipcovered anyway so all I needed to do was copy the pieces, add a seam allowance and sew together - it sounds easy, but somehow it was not! There was a lot of cursing involved, and it's a little snug in places, but overall turned out well i think. This project is "modeled" by Chester kitty.

That looks ridiculously comfortable. I just want to curl up and read a book in your nook!

Looks great. I have a chair and ottoman I would like to cover, but it is not slip covered. I am not sure what to do to cover it. Have you covered a chair without a pattern?

This is beautiful. I love the fabric.

What a bold undertaking and your finished product looks very professional. I think your fabric choice is classic and one that can be used with all your bright modern colors you love. A great "neutral" fabric but not boring. Well done!

I love this and am so impressed! I could never imagine making slip covers...wonderful! And love the cat:-)

I am pretty impressed also. I slipcovered an ottoman, once. It was trial and error on my part because I only had a book to go by. The chair you did looks fantastic.

Wow this is so awesome! I have a slipcovered chair too - there's a lot of pieces that have to fit together just right to get it to fit well. Yours looks great! (Great price on the fabric too!)

wow, thanks everyone! Really, you just take it one piece at a time, and it comes together eventually :-)
