In Process

A project I’ve been working on this week; making changes to these chairs.   I started out looking at three different tutorials {which I printed out} and wound up just doing my own thing.

The fabric underneath has to be dealt with {it shows through}, but I’m sharing my “in the process” pictures with you.   It’s very cloudy here today so let’s go into the living room where there’s a little more light.

Very casual and carefree chair slips! Nothing fancy and keeping it simple. I’ve got one down and three more to go!

Then I will need to figure out if I want chair ties, velcro closures or if I actually need anything at all.  It seems to sit on the chair pretty well all by itself.  I will have to sit on them, and get up and down a few times, to see if they stay put.

I’ll have a more thorough post on these coming up this week.

I think they are adorable! I laughed when I read that you printed out the tutorials but then did your own thing. That's what I do! I do lot of research but end up just winging it... XO Cindy

Hi Kathy,
I love how the slipcover looks on the chair. The chair style has a cottagey country french look and the ruffled slip is perfect.

hugs
Sissie

Love it Kathy! So perfect for Spring & Summer too! I wish I had white chairs like yours instead of brown parsons chairs, but I don't have to wipe fingerprints off them as often! Ha! Angie xo
