Good Combination

Lately, the tear in the seat of this chair has been bugging me. It's apparently been bugging Svea too. This is "her" chair at night when she and Henry watch a video at the computer (he gets the big desk chair, of course) and the tear has grown in the past 2 weeks as she picks and pulls at it:



I got this for my birthday, sweet Husqvarna Lily:



Then fabric was on sale and Amy Butler's inspiring Midwest Modern was available at the library and viola! Slip cover solution!





We'll see how Svea likes it tonight...
