Blue and White Slipcovered Chair

Between a couple weeks of computer problems and getting ready for Roses and Rust, I haven't had much time to post lately. But with a new computer and most of the pieces ready or near ready, I will be sharing some of the projects that have kept me so busy lately!

I think this chair is my favorite! In fact, I may have trouble letting it go!

Here it is "before": good lines but a little dated and the wool fabric was itchy!

I absolutely loved this fabric when I saw it last fall.
I didn't know what I would do with it, but I had to have it!

I just laid it over the chair and began cutting it to size.

Then I started pinning.

I pinned along the the top.

I pinned along the sides,

I pinned the corners.

I folded everything so I could just top sew along side my pins
and not have to turn the fabric. 

This ensures that you have a good fit.

I added white piping to the bottom only.

The fabric is a little busy, so I didn't want to add to it with too much piping

 I added velcro to the sides so the cover could be taken off,

then some cute white buttons.
Love it from all angles!
