Hello,

So this is not the most exciting project, but I think the fabric is gorgeous and thought some fellow craftsters might love it too.

I got this office chair for my sewing room, height adjustable and the wheels work - yay  Smiley  It was only $30 second hand so I was chuffed.  Down side was it was a boring blue colour.  I bought this gorgeous fabric a while back and had been waiting to find a use for it.  So the covers are removable - elastic inside a channel round the edge of the fabric.  They're lined so the blue of the chair doesn't show through, and I had to make them removable because we have four cats, and seeing as the fabric is cream I figure it would need washing fairly regularly!  I just tucked the edges of the covers under the black plastic to make it look a bit neater.







I hope you can see the fabric reasonably clearly - there are pattern pieces and technical drawings between the ladies.

Comments and criticism much appreciated  Smiley

That fabric is gorgeous! That's really smart making the covers removable.

That is too cool.  I love the fabric.  I have to do this. I have the same kind of chair and my cats love it the most.

Why, oh why can't all office chairs be so beautiful  Huh

I have to agree, with kitties around it is a very good idea to have a washable option - especially when you you have the best sewing room fabric!

The fabric is a few years old so might be hard to find now.  It was a Timeless Treasures fabric - I think just called 'Era C', their no. 4965.
