Before Christmas I finished these two slip covers for two grubby white armchairs.  The chairs themselves are wonderful, but they could really use re-upholstering after having lived with us and our marmite-loving children.  But it seems foolish to reupholster them now, so until the kids are bigger they will live underneath these removable & washable slip covers.

The fabric is from two pairs of curtains that I picked up at a second-hand shop.  They are held in place underneath with some button tabs that wrap around each leg, and there is velcro holding one side seam together, so that it was possible to make them removable but still snug fitting.
