|Much as I love a beautifully upholstered old chair, my worry is always that the fabric will become soiled over time.|
|This little chair is one of my favourites and gets well used by the family as the perfect place to rest awhile with a cuppa, it being right in front of the sunniest window.|
|Today I decided it was high-time I made a new cover for the seat (which underneath is upholstered in the drabbest fabric the 1970's were able to provide!)...|
|And what better choice, than to showcase a fabulous vintage Sanderson linen that came to me via a swap? (More of this story on my current Facebook post.)|
|The chair previously had a frilled cover, which I made many years ago and have now become tired of. I used this as a pattern to cut out the new cover, minus the fussy frill.|
|It is lined on the underside to make it double layered and so more durable,|
and simply ties in place under each leg with velvet ribbons...
|Making it easy to remove for laundering.|
A clean and crisp finish for easy living.
|Enjoy the rest of your week,|
