This is my favorite office chair. I purchased it at Habitat Restore and it is oh so comfy. But oh so ugly. Looks like it needs a makeover.
After making my first office chair slipcover I had some of my hand printed fabric left over. Just enough to cover this chair. This chair is a little different from the typical office chair you find. It does not have any adjustment knob in the back, along with that weird hump they usually have. But even so, it still needed a pleat in the back because the bottom tapers in. The pleat allows it to go on easier.
I complimented my hand printed fabric with a white tone on tone stripe sheeting. I decided not to use any cording, it looks cleaner and simpler. A look that I’m very attracted to these days.
For the skirt I used my 1/2″ Quick Pleater but left the pleats unpressed for a soft look. The tie is threaded through 2 vertical buttonholes just at the edge of the pleat.
I love how soft and sweet this office chair slipcover turned out and I enjoy my favorite sewing chair even more. I hope you like it to.
I’m working on a few project using the Quick Pleater and here is the latest. When I saw this pillowcase at the thrift store, I knew it was destined to become a cute little dress with cute little pleats.
This is such a happy little fabric; it makes me smile just looking at it. And these pleats! Don’t you love them.
The pleats were made using the 3/4″ Quick Pleater.
Don’t have one yet! Then head on over to the store and get yours now!
Meet Dawn. Or rather meet Dawn's first slipcover project. Dawn purchased both sets of Quick Pleaters from me back in August and used them in her first slipcover project. Now Dawn had logged in a few hours at the sewing machine, but never tried a slipcover before.
For her first project she choose to tackle this hand me down coffee table and turn it into a slipcovered ottoman. I'm sure you've seen this table before; I've actually owned one like it way back when. The size and shape of the table is great, but as you can see, it was not the prettiest thing around. So why not slipcover it!
And look what Dawn did! Some pretty floral fabric and kicky knife pleats in a contrasting solid and wow! a whole new look. Check out those pleats! Gotta love that Quick Pleater.
Here is what Dawn had to say about the Quick Pleater: I’m quite delighted and the pleater tool was fabulous. Can’t imagine creating the knife pleats any other way.
Way to go Dawn! Can't wait to see more pleater projects.
