So many times I've seen the ties we sew on char cushions
(for tieing on chairs and keep the cushions in place) wear
down and before you know it they tear off after too much stress of our familly and friends set in the chair>
Solution-- Cut the fabric strips for the tie backs on the bias--this gives these ties some stretch--.:up: :up: :up:

Great idea. :up: I've had to sew ties back onto chair cushions a few times. I will remember that tip.
