Quick Tea Towel Chair Cover



I bought these 2 tea towels today (am I hooked on tea towels or what ?). They are new but I thought very pretty. So when I got home I decided to fold them over my arm chair, top and bottom. A quick fix for me and my floral addiction.

  23. Hi Simone, tea towels are gorgeous. I would sew plain white cotton on the back and turn them into some gorgeous cushions that way you can have them on the couch all the time.

  24. Simone, this is so pretty! And you always have such innovative ideas. I love it!
    And I'm stealing your idea when spring rolls around here again and I need to lighten and brighten my house a bit!
    Lovely patterns!
    Thanks for always being so generous!
    All the best,
    Eileen

  25. And it is as pretty as can be! I add vintage tablecloths and all kinds of things to chairs and couches just so I don't have to look at the same old furniture. Brightens my day to do so. And this bright cheerful post certainly helped!

  29. They are lovely Simone. I adore tea towels as well. My daughter would have them pulled out in two seconds however to wrap around a doll or herself. I would have to secure them somehow! xx
