Slip Covers Complete!


I took pictures as I went along on this project, but to even think of explaining how I did this is overwhelming. Let's just say I am glad they are done and I don't have 1980's mauve chairs in my living room anymore! And they are totally removable and washable.

I used inexpensive muslin to make my pattern pieces. I also made the slip covers out of Osnaburg, which is a muslin fabric, but kind of looks like a linen. Osnaburg is very inexpensive and did well when I pre-washed and dried it.


Be inspired!

I love them! My mother and I recently slip covered a chair that my aunt gave to me, it's awesome!

Thanks for sharing, and I loved your layering post at Nester's place.

Welcome back. I have so missed your inspiring blog posts. Your blog and homespunliving were the first two blogs I ever visited and each is so creative, comforting, instructional and charming. To this day they are still two of my favorites. The chairs turned out great.
