Brushed Canvas Chair and a half Slipcover

I do not have a before picture of this chair 1/2 but it was green and the back cushion was floppy. My customer ordered a cushion wrap for her back cushion and it is good as new. The brushed canvas makes a soft and snuggly slipcover and it gets softer with each washing.
I pre-wash all fabrics in HOT water and dry on a HOT setting to remove the maximum shrinkage before I begin constructing the slipcover.

Red Wing Slipcover

It has been a long time since I posted new pictures of my work.  During the Christmas rush I kept forgetting to bring my camera to the customer's home.

This was a great transformation from before to after.  The slipcover done in a red denim has breathed new life into this old girl.   The extra scrolls on the front of the wings is a great detail and posed quite a challenge combined with the attached back cushion. I am really happy with the results.

My calendar is quickly filling up.  As of today I am booking into the middle of June.
