Pears, Grapes and Cherries

This is something I did a while back, but I thought I’d show it to you nevertheless. When I moved out from home, we bought these chairs from IKEA for my first apartment. I really like their design, but they had boring and ugly covers. Ever since then I’ve wanted to replace them, but I never came around to actually do that. Three years and two flats later, I finally sat down to sew those covers. And I really like how they turned out! I ran into some problems with the way I constructed them, but you can’t really see it and they do cover the chairs, so what else can I rightfully expect? I made four with the fruit fabric (the fourth chair is broken and we haven’t yet repaired it) and one in yellow to match the curtains in my room.
