    Seat Covers

    We purchased new recliners and wanted covers to protect them. Couldn't find anything I was crazy about, so I decided to make them. Applied a new technique (for me) of column quilting, so was a learning opportunity.

    The covers are attached to the wooden frame on the underside with velcro, so hopefull will stay in place.

    Still need to make arm covers.

    that is wonderful~I have off white furniture in our family room (sigh) and I bought some cover's and I knew they would work b/c they are long enough~ they are terrible,they don't stay and I paid 82.00 for them there even quilted spills wont go thru to the furniture~but they are so frustrating because I cant keep them to stay put~ I could try this! I think these are fantastic
    I Love ALL kinds of CrAfTs

    Great idea to keep the recliners clean. I might have to try that I usually use a sheet and yes
    it looks awful.

    Finished

    Finished the recliner covers las night, so finally complete! The velcro isn't working as well as I'd like (to attach to the wood frame on the underside. I'm thinking snaps, I think I can get some that I can screw into the frame. Does anyone have other ideas?

    Very cute idea. Is there a pattern by chance? This would make an excellent gift for Christmas!

    Sorry, no pattern. I custom made them and kind of designed as I went along.
