Since I missed Watcha Workin On Wednesday

I missed yesterday because I was up late Tuesday night working on my project then had to work yesterday. I work again today, but I have a few minutes to post.

I made two pillow shams for my couch. They are wool I think LOL. I am not finished with them because I can't decide what I want to put on them. I'd like to make them work for both fall and winter. I thought about wrapping fabric around them in different colors, but then I think that's not what I want. So who knows what I'll come up with. I know not very interesting.

Next I have hated this chair cover for years. I am not a floral person, but this is what my grandma had it covered in. It kinda goes with the colonial theme, but I hate the colors. LOL. Normally I keep it covered with a blanket or something.

So I decided to make a slip cover. I have never attempted anything like this before. I had the material already in my stash. So I measured, cut and sewed. This is what I came up with. It is not done either as you can tell I still need to hem it because of the skirt still on it.

And I still need to cover the cushion. I am also going to pad the arms and back still. It is not very comfortable as you can feel the wood back through the cushion. I want it to look more like a make do chair. I won't get a chance to work on it til this weekend so I'm hoping to finish it up then.

It looks great so far. I have a chair I would love to recover but don't have a clue on how to start. Have a great day at work.
