New Chairs for Kathy

Another fun project for a client that had some great chairs that needed a little bit of an update.
The Before~ The After~ This is actually a great textured neutral fabric ( I should have taken a close up of the texture )

There was however a challenge with this chair or set of chairs as there are two of them. The Challenge was I had about 5 yards of the pretty fabric to make TWO slipcovers with so I combined a cream colored duck cloth



I used the duck cloth for the pipping, insides of kick pleats and the back panel along with a little boarder at the very bottom of the skirt. I really like the way it turned out just so soft and classy!


Next was this little guy or gal I should say. She's seen better days but structurally she's in great shape






So we Slipped her in this cute stripe .








buttons in the back ... this time their only for show. I ended up putting a zipper at the side so that the slipcover could be removed easily.






So that's what's been happening in my shop this week.

How about you?
