Look What I Made!

Ok, so I know this isn't really worthy of a blog posting, but nonetheless I'm rather pleased with myself.  I have wanted to do this for some time.

Start with ugly wingback chair, ugly green upholstery fabric, completely riddled by cats.



The chair now, after about a week of measuring and sewing and probably 500 trips up and down the stairs to the sewing machine.


The slipcover fits like a glove and looks like upholstery,  if I do say so myself.  Lots of piping to give it detail.




Hooray!  Now to do the second chair, should be much easier the second time around.

  14. I am impressed. I am sitting now in a chair that could use a slip cover. I would never attempt. Actually it looks like your before chair except reddish in color. Had it since 1978, tough to part with. Well done Melinda.

  15. wow! I have recovered a wing back chair and it wasn't much fun. I wonder if a slip cover is as hard? It sure looks great - congrats and good luck on the next one! Did you find a tutorial to help you out? Or figure it out by yourself?

  16. You don't think this is worthy of a blog posting? What else are you keeping from us??? This is fabulous, impressive, enviable! I could watch 10 videos and still not come close to such a custom fit.

  18. WOW!!!! I'm so impressed! I have a friend who used to do such reupholstery work, but there's no way I could do it. Love the fabric, love the chair! Sigh.

  19. Wow! You did a great job! Those are not easy to do and are certainly not easy to get on when they fit so tightly. Love, love, love it!
