Re-covering chair seats

We recently moved an old dinning room table into our kitchen. The seat covers were in horrible condition, stained and ugly. I was drafted to re-cover them. I had about four yards of blue flowered cloth that I did not really need. Since my mother's kitchen is mostly blue with a bit of mauve, it worked out nicely to cover the chairs with this cloth.

Behind that stubborn lock of hair,
Behind mischievous eyes,
Behind that carefree innocence
A man in making lies.
Behind his childish buoyancy,
Behind that warming smile,
An adult waits to be revealed
In just a little while.
Be slow to speak, my lips! My hands,
be careful what you do!
The kind of person he will be
Depends so much on you.
