I bought a little chair at the thrift store last summer. My intention was to learn to make slipcovers, using a simple chair as a test run. Yesterday I bought four yards of red canvas at WalMart ($18.00) and today I'm going to prewash/shrink the fabric. I'm hoping to have the slipcover pinned onto the chair today, do the cording tonight, and then sew it (at least partly) by tomorrow night. I've been keeping sketches and pictures of cool slipcovers for years, so if this turns out to be something I can actually do, then I'll be off and running making some funky slipcovers. I'd like to use different fabrics on the same chair, maybe do some with rick rack in a contrasting color... I've got lots of ideas.
