The mama and the papa.

I'm working on slipcovers for a pair of wing chairs that are definitely a pair, but at the same time are slightly different. The client calls them the mama chair and the papa chair. The mama has a little more curviness. I am covering them in a big check fabric. I have learned from past experience that if I don't cut the pieces out in the right order, the checks (or plaids) won't line up, usually in some noticeable place on the chair.

I went to the Internet to seek help with this, but found nothing. I thought of e-mailing Angie (the Slipcover Diva), but being the impatient person that I am, I asked the only one around who I thought could help me.




But Max just looked up from his studies and shook his head from side to side.




So, this is what I came up with. I'll let you know how it turns out.

"how it turns out..."

Probably perfect like everything else you do!

How you do any of that slipcover thing just seems like magic to me. I am in awe!
