Seat cover

I sew on an office chair that I've had for years. It's been asking to be recovered for some time so I finally did it:

No idea how it got so dirty!!

This is what I made:
I added elastic but didn't pull it tight enough. It works though:


I'm thinking I may need to do the back, too! Oh and it didn't make a dent in the bag!!

  10. That looks so cute. I took my chair like that apart and pulled off the old fabric and then stapled the fabric on and put it back together. It was part of a project I did at the quilt shop. Several people tried to get out the door with it. I kept my eye on it.

  14. Looks fabulous! Such a wonderful idea! What I found to work to pull up the slack, is to make a sleeve, all around the outside edge, to thread a string through, and then knot it. (Like an ironing board cover). Just be careful not to pull too tight, or it could pull away from the seam. (experience) LOL
