Give away chair cover pattern

I haven't sewn a single item in my life. In fact, I take pride in the fact that the high school I went to in year eight didn't even have 'Home Economics' as a subject. Despite my clear lack of education, I recently decided that I would try to make a cover for my wing chair.

The whole project lasted about the length of time it took for me to purchase the pattern. As soon as I got it home and opened it I realised the error of my ways. I couldn't make sense of the pattern, let alone contemplate actually making the cover. So I gave up.

Luckily the Aussie Dollar has been strong lately and I just so happened to find the Sure Fit website. A couple of clicks later and I had purchased this gorgeous cover (plus a matching sofa cover and an ottoman cover.) I'm so lucky to have a lovely American friend who took delivery of my order and posted it off today. I have everything crossed that the product is as good as it looks in the pictures.

If anyone would like the unused pattern please post here. If more than one person wants it then I guess I will just draw the 'winner' out of a hat. Here's a pic just to show you what you will receive. It's been opened, folded up and packed away again. (It looks better in real life, the light has washed it out in the picture.)

Hey guess what, I made the exact same mistake not long ago!!!! I have that 'pattern' in the back of the cupboard too. I am off to check out the website. Thanks! ;-)
