Drop Cloth Slipcovers

Good Sunday morning... Just a quick post to show you what I have been working on... Do you remember the GW parson chairs ? Well they are finally done ... I used drop cloth for the slipcovers and left the seam down the middle for a little whimsy.. I think they turned out great. Thank You Cindy...Your the best....

Great idea & great job! Who knew the "humble" dropcloth could provide the basis for so many wonderful creations? Ideas keep popping up all over blogland.

Wow! I love the seam down the middle. I like the piping (or whatever it's called) around the top too. Looks great!

Pattie, those are gorgeous, and I love your dining room too! I so admire those who can sew, I keep saying I'll get to learning, and still haven't had the time. Your slipcovers are so professionally finished, and really add to the cottage feel of the room. xxx tami

Pattie, great slips. You do such a great job on them. Wish I could sew like that. Have two parsons chairs that need slips. Have fun in the yard.

Cindy @ LeChaiseParfait said...

I love those Pattie, I am getting ready to do some for my dining room on the bottom of my chairs. You are so good at this stuff. I keep putting it off. Good job I guess I should jump right in. ;-)

Pattie, I wish I could sew like that! They turned out great and look awesome in your dining room. I need to get outside and do some yard work but I'm forever creating more projects inside to do.

Enjoy this wonderful day,

Lovely slipcovers... I'm drooling over them. Great job. you are so talented. Can't wait to see the outside work you've completed. I'm feeling a bit lazy today. So windy here in Greenfield. Heard we may get some severe storms later. Ughh... c'mon warmer weather.

Stacey@A Sort Of Fairytale said...

the slipcover is fantastic...it even has piping on the edges! i really need to learn how to sew...
great job...LOVE it!!

Eileen said...

Gorgeous job on the slipcovers. I have been working on doing 8 chairs for my dining room, but no piping for me. I'm taking the easy way out.
I love your piping though!! And the seam in the middle looks awesome. Like an old feedsack. I love it!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That looks great, Pattie! I envy all the sewing bloggers who can do slipcovers. My sewing is pretty limited to straight lines, so this is rather intimidating for me.

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

Your slipcover looks awesome! (I wish I could sew!) I love the whole room! It's gorgeous!!

The American Homemaker said...

That turned out so great! I love it!

Bromeliad said...

Awesome. Did you bleach them or leave them the natural color? Tx.

Bromeliad said...

p.s. thanks for stopping by with the answer. (No bleach.)

WOW! I am so impressed! You did a fabulous job and love the seam down the middle. Looking good!

sheila said...

I love your chair cover. the drop cloth is such a great idea. I am trying to do a chair cover, it is a slow process for me. It looks like you have a sweet Boston Terrier, we have a male. he is the best dog.
Blessings, Sheila

KATHY said...

Thanks so much for following! I'm your new follower. I love your slipcovers! You did such a fabulous job on them. I have two chairs in my kitchen that are the same style as yours, and you gave me inspiration to make some slips for them.

Love it! The seam gives it an added touch that I like a lot! I have no clue how to make a slip cover or do upholstery, it's always been a mystery to me. You really did a great job!
