Christmas Chair Covers with snowflake embroidery

You will need :
  • embroidery threads either polyester or rayon,
  • craft felt, red and white, (the amount of felt you need depends on the size and number of your chairs),
  • white pom-poms, about 4" in diameter, or white acrylic yarn to make pom-poms and tapestry needle,
  • light-weight embroidery stabilizer,
  • rotary cutter or scissors,
  • #12-14 sewing needle,
  • sewing thread of matching colors,
  • chalk or fabric marker and quilter's ruler.
Measure the circumference of the chair back at its widest part. Divide the measurement by 2 and add 1" for ease and seams.
Thus the circumference of our chair is 41". Divided by 2 = 20 1/2", plus 1" = 21 1/2". We round it up to 22".
Measure the circumference of the chair back in its widest part.

On red felt, with chalk or marker, draw a square measuring 22" x 22".

Sew the white strips to the lower edges of the red parts. Seam allowance 1/2".
Open the seam and top-stitch 1/4" on each side of the seam.

If you do not have a pom-pom, use white yarn to make it. There are different methods to make a pom-pom, here is the easiest and fastest one.
Tuck the end of yarn between the index and middle fingers. Start wrapping the yarn around 4 fingers leaving the thumb free.
Remove the yarn from fingers.

Tie the center with a separate length of yarn, leaving the ends about 10" long. Shape the pom-pom.
