dots and more dots

My husband helped me recover the cushions on my kitchen chairs.
TWO have RED dots--TWO have PINK dots
It is oilcloth, hence the shine coming off the picture
I love the look, as I am a lover of polka dots
I just had to sneak a bit of Christmas in this picture...
hmmmm...having some of the oilcloth left,
not sure what I am going to do with it.
Any ideas?

The chairs look great!
Mine are in such bad shape I hate for anyone to have to sit on them! With my boys I need something more 'washable' next time...I think I'll try the oilcloth.

Hi Deby...love your polkas...how are you doing? You and your family have been in my prayers constantly....I hope you are in a good place emotionally....

Loved the post about your DD and Bare Minerals...I use it too and I JUST found out about the store..I know...duh...so now I have to go check it out. I got mine originally from QVC because I had a gift certificate from my MIL...so now I need to go check out the store and get some for my DD and her BFF for Christmas.
Hugs,

I adore Polka-Dots...

You can use oil cloth for a cute apron to match! ;)

Such cute projects you come up with for your home...

First idea I came up with is placemats. I can't remember whether oilcloth frays or not, but you could use pinking shears to cut the edges if it did. Some other ideas are here: http://oilcloth.com/projects.php How about a simple tote bag? Have fun!

Hi Deby!!!
Love the chair covers!!
With the remaining material you can make placemats or even just ribbons to tie around your napkins!!!
Or tie a piece of ribbon in that material in your hair :):) (thats what I would do hahaa)
Love Candy

You and your husband did a fabulous job with your chairs and the polka dots look so cheerful :o)

Matching placemats would be my idea for the leftovers :o)

Blessings!

That is so cute! Of course, I like red. :)

Deby, I love your chairs! I have a set of very similar chairs in need of a do-over, but for some reason, I had not considered oilcloth. Duh! I think it would wear a lot better than the options I had in mind. And how clever using the two different colors. I am definitely inspired!

Cute, cute, cute! I've always wanted to make something with oilcloth ... such an interesting fabric.
