4 days later…

I’m done…

This was my first attempt at slipcovers…they’re not perfect but no one will be looking that closely

This is what the chairs looked like when I bought them…

They were pretty sloppy looking so I tailored them be fit tighter…also they were on casters which I took off, hence the long skirt…

I ripped them apart and used it as a guide…and voila!

I LOVE!!!  I’m pretty proud of myself, it was a little intimidating but thank heavens for my inherited sewing skills and of course the boob tube which kept my little ones hypnotized while I worked…

my friend B said I could charge for them…I told her hell to the no!  I can’t wait to knock out head chairs and my drapes…
