Slowly but surely - I see the completion of this one

Wow - I must have been totally out of my mind when I contemplated sewing a slipcover for a wing back chair. This has been quite a project I think mainly because of the plaid fabric being used. I have to take care and make sure to match plaids, but it's turning out pretty good. Now all I have to do is the other arm (you can see the hideous green leather which is original). Thought I had better take a little break from the project because I know my limits. I will do a lot of top stitching which will give the slipcover a better fit and hanging capability. Anyone having a slipcover done professionally - please don't quibble over the price quoted - trust me - it is worth every penny.


  1. It looks like it is going to be quite cute, Bettie. I could never take on a project like this, I'm all thumbs!


  2. IT going to be quite beautiful when done!!! Please sho wus the finished product!! Have a great night!

  3. After this post, I completed the "not so full" ruffle for the bottom of the slipcover. It turned out really well. Completion of the other arm and another final post should mark this "PROJECT DONE". Will I ever be glad!!!!!!!!!!

  4. It's turning out great Bettie! I actually like the green leather too~ You do wonderful work. I'm pretty much ashamed of my little slipcover in my craft room!
