I recovered the kitchen chairs. I have had the material for, I really don't know how long,(years) so I thought I would attempt it to get myself away from all the stress going on.

I remember my mom recovering her living room furniture, so I tried the same thing. I tore the chairs apart, they are metal that roll around and also rock. The backs are also fabric. Anyway I tore them apart, then took a seam ripper and took out the seams. There was my pattern. All I did was use the peices to cut out the new ones, sewed them together and stapled them back on, the way I took them off.

They look amazing, I cant beleive I didnt do it sooner. It didnt take that much material either, I have alot left over to I'm making covers that I can take off and wash when they get dirty. After I got started I could have done all four in a day, it really didnt take that long.

that's absolutley amazing to me.....

I could NEVER do that! Really, I would have no idea where to start. Never bought fabric before, even. So when I hear off someone doing this, I am just in total awe!!!

That is wonderful! You got yourself "custom" chair covers. I remember my mom recovering the living room furniture, and she did all the sewing by hand, sewing the fabric directly on to the sofa and chairs. Pretty amazing stuff if you ask me! So congrats to you, and count me in on seeing the pictures!
