I was inspired by Diane at In My Own Style when she sewed slipcovers for her dining room chairs. (she has an excellent "how to" on her blog) Therefore, I decided to cover my chairs, however, I used burlap. Because the burlap frays, I lined my slipcovers with muslin. Diane's slipcovers had a knot/bow on the back (which I loved but I didn't have enough fabric to create the same) so I added a ruffle to the bottom of mine. The fabric for the ruffle was leftover material from my kitchen curtains. I love the look, they were simple to do and they can easily be changed for different decorating themes or seasons.
