Jen Duncan's Selvage Chair

Jen Duncan of Eureka, California just finished this great selvage chair for her sewing room. I like it. Here's what she says:

"I've wanted for some time to recover my sewing chair in selvages. It was an ugly fabric covered office chair but still worked fine so I couldn't justify throwing it away. Spent my free time during the past couple of days finally getting it done. Overall I like how it turned out and thought I better share it with you, since you are the original source of all my selvage-y inspiration! :-) Not sure what I'll be making with them next but you can be sure it'll be something because I really do enjoy working with them."

Nice job, Jen!

I have an old ottoman that I'm now looking at with menace, and the words "bed skirt" come to mind as well. Thanks for the great ideas! I love the piping. This opens up a whole new area of creativity.

TOTALLY ADORABLE!!!!

I just love it. Both the selvages and the skirt make that the cutest chair cover ever. I've been needing to redo mine, but couldn't think of a good way to do it. Now I'm inspired to make something very similar!!

Thanks for sharing.
