Chair Slipcover

As if I don't have enough to do...here's something else I've been working on. I've had this fat chair and ottoman for ever. It has been in four different homes with me and I still adore her but she doesn't go with anything at all. I didn't want to get rid of her so I decided I would try to cover her...err what did I get into...   
                                                                  Before 
I needed help! By sheer accident I found Miss Mustard Seed and couldn't believe my luck. She has the best tutorial for slip covering furniture. She's soooo incredible! 
My chair and ottoman are not perfect and cannot compare to hers but this is my 1st slip cover and I am pretty happy with it. I think she would be proud ;)
Here she is...with all her imperfections :)


Go check her out if you're into to these things...her blog is delicious! Thanks Marian!

Emily,
Thanks and I wish I could make that pillow. I bought it in Wimberley, Texas- in a little antique store near Houston . You can order one here: http://www.bellecose.com/product/BC-39353.html
