My baby is 1!! and a slip cover
I made a slip cover for this chair that is a hand me down from big sister. This was a gift for my oldest daughter on her 1st Bday.
Regarding the slip cover: I'm really pleased and totally surprised that the slip cover turned out as well as it did. No step by step pics to post because I honestly thought it was going to be a mess. So the moral of the story...even someone who doesn't know what they are doing can make a slip cover.
I made a rough pattern out of tissue paper, then cut my fabric from the tissue paper pattern. Then I pinned two pieces at a time together using the chair as my guide. Then I sewed it together. I added one more piece at a time, using the chair as my guide until it was complete.
Thanks for taking a look and have a great day!
