Several years ago my husband bought me this cozy chair, it has been my favorite chair we have ever owned. It is upholstered in a lovely flower fabric that has been showing wear for some time. A week ago I started working on a slip cover using a matelasse bedspread. I was quickly overwhelmed by the project and tossed it in a pile in my sewing room. I was ready to throw the whole mess out. I picked it up again today and decided to give it another try.
Here is my cozy chair with its new cover.
It is not a perfect fit but I do think it is a much fresher look.
The buttons down the side make it easy to remove the cover and toss it in the wash.
The view from the back.
We do have a dog, cat and many grandchildren to I am sure that this cover will be washed often.
Going back to the project when I was a little more focused did help a lot. I was close to tossing the whole thing out the first time I tried working on it. I think it will be a while before I try another project like this one. I am very happy with the results but will stick to some "fun" sewing for the next few weeks.
