Ruffled Chair Covers

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share my Mother's Day gift with you.  After painting my kitchen chairs white, I wanted to add more style to the seat cushions.  I thought about just changing the fabric, but then a good blog friend of mine, Des, suggested that I add ruffled chair covers to them.  Instantly, I loved the idea!  So, I decided to contact my other good blogging friend, Ann, from On Sutton Place to qive me a quote on them.

We discussed what I wanted and kept it affordable.  Ann is a wonderful seamstress, as  a lot of you already know. So I knew the quality would be fantastic!  

They just arrived in the mail and I couldn't be happier!



I wanted drop cloth material with a medium length ruffle (4").  To save money, I opted for a 3 sided ruffle cover with gross grain ribbon ties.  The backs of my chairs aren't very open anyway, so I didn't feel like I would miss having a ruffle along the back.


I like that these are washable too.  This look fits in well with the rest of my house.

Ann was also sweet enough to throw in this lovely set of handmade sachets filled with lavender and tied with a metal heart.  Too cute!

I wish you could smell it!  My entire package smelled heavenly.


If you are ever in  need of something special for your home, I wouldn't hesitate to contact Ann.  She also has a fantastic Etsy shop with handmade items ready to ship.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my gosh Kelly what a coincidence!!
I started making drop cloth slips with 8" ruffles for my kitchen chairs.
I so love yours!! Now I know how mine are going to look.I'm making mine so that my existing cushions can go inside. I'm posting in the next few days my progress. Too funny! don't you think....

These are just gorgeous, Kelly! I love Ann's work and she has a wonderful blog to top it off. Just wondering, do you have an insert or do they just lie flat on your chair covers? So pretty!

They are fabulous Kelly! I love this look! I wondered the same thing Jane wondered...is there a pad underneath or an insert pocket for a foam pad? What gives them the plump?
