Primary Colors

I know we're a few weeks into starting the new year, but I wanted to show some slipcovers I made for our Primary. ( I actually made them a year or so ago, but we never got into the habit of using them. We started using them again for the new year.) I used yellow fabric for the Sunbeams, green fabric for the CTR classes, and blue fabric for the Valiant classes.
First, I made a pattern of the top of the chair by tracing it onto a piece of old wallpaper. Next, I cut that out and traced it onto the colored fabric. I sewed the fabric together around the edge on the sewing machine. Then, I hemmed along the bottom. Then, I turned it right-side-out and cut up some plastic sheet protectors for the pockets. Last, I made cards with the number for each age group out of cardstock.
I really like how they turned out. I enjoy the bright, happy colors. I had to hand sew the plastic sheet protectors on because my sewing machine didn't like them. I also made some red ones for the talks and prayer, and a white one for the person being baptized.

THAT IS SUCH A GREAT IDEA.
WHY DIDN'T WE HAVE THESE WHEN I WAS SERVING IN PRIMARY WITH YOU ?

The slipcovers are actually just for the teachers' chairs. They designate where each class sits. Good question. Why didn't we have these?

Oh yeah. Probably because the kids sat on benches.(I forgot that on the last one.)
