I think your fabrics are lovely!
Using both of these will brighten up the wood furniture. I think you are definitely on the right track!
I agree, the blue/white combo is always a good choice.
I think the blue and white fabric is perfect as it's a classic combination and will really brighten them up. I would use the blue and beige(?) for the footstool as it would be less likely to show up scuff marks than the blue and white.
I think the fabrics will look awesome!!
I am happy with the rocking chair cushion but I'm not sure about the skirt at the bottom of the footstool. Maybe it will grow on me?
I think it looks great, very sophisticated ! Love the rocking chair cushions as well.
WOW you are fast...I so need to do this to a chair in my kitchen but it scared me as have never tried something like this before.
True I traced around the cushion to make a pattern for the top and bottom. Then I measured the distance between the top and bottom of the fusion and the distance around. On the back of the rocking chair cushion I put a dipper so I can take the cover off and wash it if needed. On the footstool I just made the top and sides and left enough seam allowance when I attached the ruffle to staple it to the bottom of the stool top. Hope that wasn't too confusing.
Oops cushion not fusion
...darn spell check...lol
Grrr...zipper not dipper
Mary lol I actually followed you...thanks for the how to's that is what I was thinking I could do but since I has never done it before was not sure. What weight fabric did you use? Thanks do much!
I used fabric used for drapes and upholstery ....if you have a Joann Fabrics close by they usually have a good selection.
They came out looking great! Love how all they all look together.
How inviting your sewing room looks. Looks like you could serve tea here as well! Love!
First of all...I love your oak chairs! The color choices for fabrics are right up my alley. I am impressed with how neat your upholstery turned out...very crisp. Just a lovely project.
These are great. the chairs are beautiful and I am so glad you decided to "upgrade" them instead of buy new modern ones. They are just wonderful.
These turned out lovely!
