I didn't take pictures as I worked on this chair, so today there is no tutorial. Just posting my newly slip covered cat lovin beaten up chair that I cherish. It's a hard chair to slip cover because there are so many factors like covering the arms and closures etc. I chose a white fabric and trimmed it out with linen colored welt.
For the closures I used Mother of Pearl buttons. The fan fold pleated skirt is accented with 1/2" of contrasting linen along the bottom. I made it just long enough to hide the "L" bracket that holds the leg on but still allows it's curvy legs to show.
Here's a few more pics.
If you have family favorite that has seen better days, slip covering may be a great option. I plan on doing a couple slip cover tutorials in the near future, so stay tuned for those.
Wish me luck in the sew-vivor competition!!Pin It
