VIP chair cover

We love to celebrate and thought it would be fun to make a special chair cover for the "VIP" we are celebrating. This cover is so simple to make and sure to make the Very Important Person in your life feel like they are king or queen for the day.

First, measure your chair around the back with a tape measure. Add one and a half inches to that measurement and cut out two pieces. If you have a square back chair you can use the fold of the fabric as your top edge so you only have to cut one piece (doubled) and sew down two sides. If you have a curved chair, you may want to lay your chair down on the fabric and trace it to get the shape.

Second, you can either hem the bottom of the cover or do like we did and just serge it so it doesn't fray.

To add letters, follow our tutorial for simple machine applique, and check out this explanation of how we used a personal die cutting machine to cut the letters. Easy peasy.

You can personalize these any way you want. Here are some ideas:

Bride To Be
Mom To Be
Child's Name
Thinking Chair
Time Out
Birthday Boy (or Girl)

Happy celebrating!
