We're having our Supper Club over Saturday evening and needed additional seating. I decided to make a pair of simple slip covers from items I already had on hand. I actually picked these chairs up a few months ago at a local swapmeet. Here's what I started with-
The slipcovers are made from unbleached muslin. I pleated the bottom portion and then added some trim. A look at the in progress-
I like that the muslin really lightens the look of the chairs. The trim is tiny and I feel it was the perfect understated detail. Here they are finished.
I also made 2 10x16 pillows-again out of scraps and trim.
I'm Ann Marie, a wife and mother of 3 wonderful and beautiful daughters. I’ve been married since 1978. I’m a custom seamstress- I love the creativity of whipping together custom linens and window treatments for clients. We’ve recently moved to an older home half the size of the newer home we were living in. This little cottage was built in 1951 and we love her. This blog will document our journey over the last 2 years of what we started with and where we are now. It has truly been a labor of love. We have done almost all of the work on this house ourselves.
I hope you enjoy the journey as much as we do!
