Chair Back Covers

I would like to thank all of you for leaving such sweet comments about my dining room tweaking.  A few folks inquired about how I made my chair back covers, so I thought I would share with  you how I made them. 

First, I measured the back of the chair to determine the width and length I needed.  005 

Allowing for a seam allowance, I cut my fabric.   In the picture below you can see where I ironed my fabric before sewing because I wanted to make sure when I turned my ends to make a point, it would be even.  046

Instead of sewing you could very easily use iron on tape but I wanted to try out my new sewing machine.   008

I sewed three sides and then turned up my ends to make a point.  I used iron on tape at the top to secure the point.  Then attached the trim.   See picture below.  016

Using my Cricut, storybook cartridge and Heat n’ Bond  I made an “F”.  048

Next, I peeled the Heat n’ Bond paper off the back of the “F”. 049

Then I placed the “F” on the front of the chair back cover and ironed it on.  050 

There you have it……a Mon0grammed Chair Back Cover.     112

I hope this all made sense to you.  If you have any questions, please email me or leave me a comment. 



  1. Such a great tutorial. Love the covers, they look fabulous. Hugs, Marty

  2. This tutorial is simply perfect. I have a chair in my daughters room that is just screaming for *something*. I LOVE your chairs and plan to do a similar treatment for her chair too.


  3. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The tutorial is wonderful. I can even do that! It looks much harder though.

  4. This is a great idea and I think cricut needs to hire you to demonstrate all of the wonderful ways to utilize their product. You have definitely proven that it's not just a machine for scrapbookers!
    The covers turned out fabulous and look wonderful in your "tweaked" dining room.
    Have a great day.

  5. Good tutorial for a great look! Thanks for sharing this. Now anytime you want to share that new machine or your cricut, just let me know! :)
