painter drop cloths = dining chair slipcovers

We took...
Home Depot large drop cloth @19.95,
5-spools of upholstery thread @1.94 ea.,
1-old sheet for the pattern, free,
6-down pillow inserts for seats @ 5.99 ea.,
brown grosgrain ribbon for ties @4.40,
& with lots of measuring & sewing, together we created new slipcovers for our dining room chairs.
Considering that neither of us had ever tried something like this before, we are thrilled with our results!

We were so exited that we are slip-covering
two club chairs in our bedroom.
One is finished, the other is on the cutting table.
Results soon!
