Basic chair cover {tutorial}

I’m always meeting people that either tell me they own a sewing machine and don’t know how to use it OR that they can only sew in straight lines. Well, you can sew a lot of things using only straight lines and in all honesty, if you can thread your machine, cut fabric and sew a straight line, you can definitely sew curvy lines too.

This basic chair cover is a project I did for Fiskars a while back and I realized I hadn’t posted it here yet.  It only requires straight lines and is perfect for a beginner because it makes a BIG impact. Obviously your chairs aren’t necessarily the same size as mine, but I’ll tell you which parts of your chair to measure and how to make a slip cover like this. What I like about my slip cover is that you can easily just change the organza tie and change the look for different seasons or holidays.
