My cottage slip cover chair

above not sure what I was doing :-}
under the slip cover
  When my chair slip cover wore out and it 
  wasn't in my budget to buy a new one
 I made my own.
 I've slip covered child chairs, stools, & cushions 
 but never a large armed chair.
 Being concerned I couldn't tackle this project
 I still gave it a try..
Using fabrics I had I got busy.
 In a week-end my cover was finished.
 The cover is far from perfect
 but sure serves it's purpose!

Oh, my goodness! That is the sweetest chair, and you did a great job! I would love to have a chair like that in my bedroom!

Joyce said...

Excellent job Mary! It looks great.....and no one can see the flaws so don't tell about them! HA!
I've been doing a bit of sewing too. I usually do it in the Winter when I am BORED!

Hello Mary,
I visit your blog often & love it! Your cottage is so sweet and the slip covered chair makes it more cosier.
BTW - I read about Nicole on your blog last year. It brought tears to my eyes.
I hope that Bella is doing okay now.
Visit me at
and take a look at Berniece's apartment (on the first page), if you kindly would. She needs your expert advice on how to combine colors. Keep in mind that she likes vintage, cross stitch, cameo's, animal things - things of that nature. Find her a color scheme. She needs help!I hope that you like Berniece!
And leave me a comment or email me.
Thank you, conny

I left a comment not long ago but do not see it popping up. I'm sorry about your daughter. She is just 3 years younger than me. So neat that you post something on her birthday. I was searching for Christmas stocking ideas and saw you beautiful stocking for old sweaters. I am very sentimental and not just your stocking but your post regarding your daughter caught my attention and a few tears. I don't know what happened of course but I'm glad my Christmas stocking search led me to you and I hope Isabella is doing okay still with her arthritis. Strong granddaughter you have there! Your cottage is beautiful! Kristi

to Kristi Speed.. thank you for your very kind comment .... I did try and get in contact with you but since you are not on blogger i cold not. My precious Nikki will have passed away 10 years ago on Dec 10.. this is always a very difficult time for me. Isabella is doing great.. she is an amazing girl. Hope you make some of the sweater stocking they are such fun! Have a blessed Thanksgiving! Mary
