safety pin chair job

 This chair is in such a bad way!…the cover was made years ago now and it has been in the washing machine sooooo many times!…hence there has been alot of fraying going on! all around the edges…I have sewn it before!…but still it frays away!

 So the other day I found some gold safety pins and thought! hey! I will try and patch up my ‘ole fraying chair….and this is how it turned out!…Everyone that visits, looks at me as if I have gone mad! lol! when I show them what I have done! as in some places, it does look a tad ODD BOD’ish (lol) but hey ho! I love the look of it overall!

Theres no accounting for taste eh! ;D

    I had the same problem and could not bear to throw the chair out so took some fabric from the back and made 2 arm covers to slip on. It has given it a few more years of life anywayxxx
