Bistro Chair Seat Cover

Posted by PFAFF®

Warm sunshine, colorful flowers, new green leaves on the trees and soft breezes – this is what we love about spring time! After a long cold winter, the joy of being outside again is a siren call. Why not create a lovely and inviting seating area with cushions for your outdoor bistro chairs? Using 4 repeats of this charming textured embroidery, you can create a one-of-a kind cushion that will add to the beauty of any outdoor space. We found this wonderful piece of multi-color decorator fabric full of bright spring colors and it became the perfect background for the embroidery.

All designs in this collection are digitized with two versions. One is to be used with embroidery foam for texture and the other is simply an outline-only version. We used design 100462010 and Sulky Puffy Foam to create volume below the satin stitches. The outline stitches serve as placement lines for the embroidery foam during stitch out.
