Excellent idea!  I'll bet crochet protects the wall beautifully.

Tink said...

What a lovely idea! They look so pretty.

Cris said...

Thank you. I have some ideas prattling around about how to make them textured on the back side and flat on the front side - we shall see what the thoughts yield :)

Cris said...

Thanks. I really thought it was a simple idea considering; however, when I started looking for patterns, I couldn't find anything similar. Odd, but good, I suppose :)

Very good idea and very creative.  I'm thankful my dining area is large enough that we don't have that problem.

I don't have walls to worry about but I'm making these because They are so cute and original! Thanks!

Cris said...

Thanks! I'm glad you like them :)

Cris said...

I won't either once we tear out the wall that is causing the problem hehehe

Cris said...

Glad you enjoy the pattern :)

I'm going to try doing this for the top of a metal headboard that keeps hitting the wall.  I'll keep you posted...  Thanks for this! 

Cris said...

oh I would love to see the result for a larger item. When you finish, you'll have to stop back and shoot me a URL of a picture of something.

I really don't have to worry about my dining room chairs bumping the wall. But these are so cute i am going to make them anyway, i love the way they look! Thank you so much for the pattern :) Pixie

These will be great to protect the chairs from our 4 year old's sticky hands.  I am anxious to make them.

Cris:

I just finished making your Kitchen Chair Topper and your pattern is wonderful, and so easy to follow.  Thank you.  What a wonderful and easy pattern.

Cris said...

 Fantastic! I am glad the pattern worked out for you and was easy to read :)

Rose said...

How would you adjust this for a chair that has a rounded top? We just repainted our dining room, and (as chief painter) I'm the only one that really pays attention to protecting the walls when pushing back chairs - it's making me a little crazy!

Cris said...

 Honestly - I wouldn't use this pattern but what I would do is make 2 half circles, adjusting for the shape where you would crochet to make the "flat" side more oblong. Stitch them together when they are done and run a cord/ribbon through it for decoration.

Thank so much for this pattern, my parents dining room chairs were ruining the walls and I did not know what solution to give my mother. I just finished one and it looks great, once again thank you.

Thanks for this pattern. I am going to use wired ribbon for the ties to make a bow and let the tails hang to the seat. I won't have to change chair pads for the season., just the ties.

thanks for the pattern.  I plan to paint my dinning room this summer and the walls are marked by the chairs now,  this is a great way to protect my soon to be newly painted walls.

Cris said...

 I can honestly say that other than the marks that are on the wall from BEFORE the toppers, no new marks are on the table and I'm using the original toppers. I hope they work just as good for you!

Tiffany Millsapp said...

Thanks for the pattern. I'm going to try extending it so that it will cover the entire back of the chair. We don't have a problem with marks on the wall but we do have a problem with sticky fingers getting food all over the chair. I HATE cleaning those rails on the back. I'd rather just take a cover off and wash it.

Aunt Candy said...

Oh my gosh. Such a simple solution to an annoying problem! And they can be decerative too for holidays and seasons. I've got to get to work. Thanks for the idea.

Jessie said...

Thank you so much for sharing this! I just got my dining room set delivered today and I'm cringing everytime one of the children sit in a chair. These will be perfect!
