I decided that the back of this slipcover was just too boring and plain, so I made these roses out of linen. (I thought the denim would be too stiff.)
I am really happy with how it turned out. This slipcover is for a metal folding chair and as it is a standard size, there is a pattern for it. I've never made a slipcover from a purchased pattern. It wasn't hard but wasn't as easy as you might think. Because I am used to actually cutting the fabric on the chair, as I am cutting, I figure out the best way to do it and know how I am going to have to sew it together. That step was eliminated here and so made it just a little challenging sewing it together.
I hemmed it higher than normal since this is my chair for the Farmers Market and I really don't want it getting filthy every week. I made the flowers to snap on and off, so I don't have to wash them along with the cover. Smart, huh?
The front looks positively plain after the cute back. I am not sure there is really anything to be done about it though. Any ideas?
This chair was my practice slipcover. I am going to be making these to sell at the Point Loma Farmers Market. I got crowns and chandeliers printed on white linen and they will be available on Sunday. I will probably post them in my Market Place, as well. Unless, of course, I sell them all on Sunday. Which could well happen, as it did last Sunday. Someone bought most of my pillows and the B&W toile slipcovered bench!
