New Chair Covers



I finally made the new chair cover. It took me about 5 hours to make one! A seamstress, I am not.




My primative notes for measurements.


                                                                                                 

                                                                                                    Sewing...




                                                                           The first ruffles are finally on.


                                                                   My Paris sign is printed out for iron-on.



                                                                      Finished chair cover before iron-on.
 

                                                                                                   Ironing



                                                                               Peeling back the label.


                                            I do like the finished result.  I would like to learn how to stencil on or figure out other options.



                                        I thought the Paris sign would be bigger, but I am happy with the results.  Time to work on the next three!
                                  I hope you all have a great night, let me know what you think!

  1. I think you did a great job! Sewing is a lot of work - and takes patience! But the end result is worth it...

  2. Great job! Very cute, and I love the transfer. I'm a fan of quilting, and as long as I can get my grandaughter to thread the needle - I'm good.

  3. Fantastic job Shanon! I love the fabric and the ruffle is a lovely touch. But the Paris iron on really makes the whole project. Very well done!

  4. They are beautiful! So very Shanon! I would love to have vintage chair covers like that, would you want to come over and make some for the bunker?
