Slipcover, in Green.

I have this chair. I have had it for maybe 15 or so years. I bought it at a church rummage sale in the pre-bedbug years. ( When I say pre-bed bug, I don’t mean my own personal fight with bed bugs. That has never happened. I refer to the fact that bed bugs are a big problem now. Making the purchase of used furniture slightly risky. )For $10. It’s a very comfortable chair, low arms making it very nice for knitting. It was a charming (not) green and blue plaid when I got it. My plan from the start was to make a slip cover for it.   So I finally got the slipcover made about 3 years ago. I had a vintage cotton bedspread that I had dyed green and just kinda draped it over and cut, and pinned, and sewed as I went. It worked pretty well, for a bit.

Annnnd now it needs a new slipcover. And, let’s face it, I should just get it reupholstered already.
