How to make a play kitchen slipcover

Kids Slipcover Chair

Do you have little kids at home but don’t have space for them to play in? Then this DIY play kitchen chair slipcover is one clever idea you can make! It’s easy to make. It won’t cost much, if at all, as you can upcycle old fabrics to make it.

Kids Slipcover Chair

Definitely ideal for small houses, this play kitchen doesn’t take up any space at all since it is simply a chair slipcover added with kitchen stove details. Set it up for the kids’ playtime using your existing dining chair, and then simply fold and store it in a drawer when they are done! Quick, easy and best of all space-saving!

You can create your own chair cover or you can use a purchased one and just add the details. Here you can make use of your scrap fabric from a previous project or even some old clothing that you do not use anymore.
