My lovely daughter gifted me with 4 pieces of beautiful fabric at Christmas time. I am still just admiring the colors and prints, and have not come up with a project. We are entertaining the idea of covering the dining room chairs with the fabric.
I recently bought 4 ” thick cushion and plan to do box edges for the 6 chairs. Hubby would prefer matching fabric on all six, and dear daughter has offered to shop again for the right number of yards. I am figuring a yard per chair; because of the depth of the cushions and boxing the cushion as opposed to just soft wrapping it. So, dear daughter, find me 6 yards of any print, all the same fabric….yellows, greens, blues, purples…..geometric or floral. (The florals in the 1st 2 pictures I just LOVE!!!).
If the floral is really large, you have to find a centerpoint and that takes MORE fabric. The “weighter” the feel, the better I think. The orange and blue at the bottom has a really light feel, and I don’t think it would wear well on the chairs, but I am considering a skirt out of it! These big pieces will make nice backs for quilts too I think. Or aprons……Or pillows……….. I just love them all and can’t decide what to do with them yet. So, they will sit on the shelf with my “stash of fabric” and I get to touch them every day!
