Anxious to get started making my own, I headed to Joanne's Fabric over the weekend. I found some great "faux linen" to use, this is going to help save a significant amout of cash since I need to make six covers for our dining room table. I am really hoping the chair covers will add some more style and brighten up the look of our dining room. However, I'm still unsure of what designs we will use on the back, but it will most likely be numbers or even a fun vintage design... feel free to send any ideas my way!
Caffeinated and feeling ambitious I got started cutting the fabric into the 2 pieces (one for the chair back and one for the seat). I will be sure to get more detailed pictures of all the steps when I work on the next 5 covers. Oh, and yes, I have to use our dining room for my sewing space for now since we haven't put together our office yet (boo).
After cutting the fabric (and putting on my pajamas I guess, whoops), I got started sewing the covers. I admit, I haven't sewn in a while, so I was nervous. I used to sew clothes all the time, but nothing for home other than curtains and pillows. So this is a challenge for me!
