    I need to get my sewing room looking like a sewing room and not a junk room. My sewing chair is a little black desk chair that what ever the material is, it attracts every dog, cat, my hair and all the little pieces of thread. Can't get it clean even with one of those sticky lint rollers. So I decided to cover it. Did a QAYG batik strips, sewed in a tube and then cut into squares. I had no idea what I was going to do, just kept playing, and this is what I came up with. It's removeable too I can wash it.

    Chair of many colors.

    I WANT ONE!!! Ok, now I have to go back through my stash...and add ANOTHER project to the list...

    QUESTIONS:
    1. Did you use elastic or just a ribbon to gather and put on your chair?
    2. Is it sandwiched?
    3. Did you quilt it?
    4. Did you put batting in?

    You know we are now going be asking you for a tutorial on this... I hope you took pictures :) :) :)

    I used elastic. It is sandwiched, QAYG, and yep there's batting. It was really very easy. And no didn't even think of taking pictures but it is easy enough to explain. I just wanted to cover my chair and I didn't want just stipes. I'll type up directions if you want, the hardest part was the elastic in the binding, but you could use a draw string of some sort. But didn't want my kitty under my chair all day.

    Love the colors. I like coming up with "lightbulb" ideas and getting them finished. Then I can move on to the normal, routine stuff. Great job! :thumbup:
