Bench Seat cover

I have been meaning to make a new slipcover for our bench seat for a while.

This one I made 6 years ago 
(pre-blogging days).

I decided to use one of the dropcloth curtain that I 

had also made years ago. 

We will not be using two of those curtains because 2 of the windows will be soon opened up as doors, 
to access the sunroom and the deck.
The material was almost the perfect size,
 I only had to add a couple of inches strip to the length on the back. 

And you can't see the back.
the seat bench cover is a really easy sewing project.
I sew the straight sides and the curved edges on the front.

I added a writing and numbers.

And this is all done.

Stay Frugal,
Daniela

Provence...I will be there someday soon (I hope). And leave the frigid wasteland known as my home. I am done with snow. Please somebody tell me it's February and winter is basically over...anybody? Please?!?!?! You really did a great job.
