The Birthday Chair Cover

The Blue Dotted Chair Cover
I think it is fun to decorate the table and the chair for birthday week!
Here is how I did it. First measure your chair from seat height in front to seat height in back. Then cut a piece of fabric to that size using pinking shears (no hems yeah!!). Then cut 2 pieces of tulle (or other fabric) into 12 inch wide by the length of the large piece sections. Next fold the tulle in half so you have 6 inch by length of the large piece sections. Pin the tulle to the insides of the large piece the long way and make a straight stitch. then fold your large piece of fabric over and sew up the sides as well. Last use your pinking shears to make slits for the ribbon to come through both in the front and the back. This is probably way more explanation than is needed! Just look at the photos.

I found my fabric at Home Fabrics.  It is heavy decorator fabric. 
Then I cut some felt into a 2 and stuck it on with double stick tape. 
Here is a view of the pinking shears.  This was a very easy project!  If you want a chair cover go for it!  Improvise and simplify where needed!
