So I wrote about the Family Fun felt chair covers project earlier this week…and I had some morning time to myself today, so I thought I’d try them out. I decided to go with the “pocket” version (not in the instructions, but here in my head.)
I simply measured the widest part of the chair and added 1 1/2 inches for seam allowance. Then I measured the height of the chair from seat to top. I measured that length up the felt and made a small mark…. then pinned up the excess. to make a pocket on the out side. It kind of looked like an “N”…. Turned the whole shebang wrong-sides to, made two seams up the sides, turned it right-side out, and PRESTO! Chair covers with only 2 seams. I decided to add a “divider” in the pocket, so I put a seam in the middle. (Ok, that one was 3!)
Now I consider myself a sewer, but today I was lazy. I hot-glued the hearts onto the back. Why not? Maybe for the next set I’ll be fussier. In the meanwhile, I think they are as cute as anything, and hopefully they will keep the kids from scraping the wall with their chairs!
For a quick and inexpensive project, this gets a big thumbs up– Craftastic!
