Diy Slip Cover For Wing Back Chair – Hello again! I’m homemade Jessica. I am very grateful to be here to tell you about a card I recently created.
“Me” is me and my sweetest and most amazing friend, Melissa, who is my favorite to jump, flutter and improvise. Before I say I can’t do this project, I say try. In fact, we were surprised at how easy it was to make, and we think it’s worth a photo.
Diy Slip Cover For Wing Back Chair
We restored this wing back chair that my family lovingly calls “Dad’s chair”. It was my grandfather’s, then my parents and my mother gave it to us. At least as far back as I can remember, I’ve seen it on pink plaid covers, on a burgundy cover, and then about 7 years ago, I worked with a friend’s sweet grandmother to cover it on this brown scroll.

Upholstery is tough. I have a lot of respect for people who do what they do well, and completely understand why it’s worth it. It’s hard work. Thanks mate, that was great, but this time I’m more relieved to use the card.
The first print I chose for my cover was Zoe Cove. Yarrow is the name of the color and it is brownish gray. There is “clay” that is often gray in color. The bay is warm.
I looked at the yardage chart estimator and checked a few more yards and ordered 9 yards.
I washed and dried first. When I do smaller projects, I regret skipping this step. This time this time is very important because if I wash it the first time all this work is gone…

We pulled the seat (right side down) so it almost touched the back floor, touched the seat of the chair and went almost to the front floor. I cut the width I needed and then cut the length.
Then we took a piece of material cut across and placed it under the floor and wing of the seat. Wing angles are confusing, but make sure the axis is straight, not diagonal.
When we wanted it to be on the wings, I fitted it around and cut off the extra material.
Next, I pinned the inside corner of the seat where it meets the wing.

I will stop here and say. Pin, pin, pin. That’s why they are your best friends. Make sure you have a handle.
Then we drop hands in the same way. From the floor, from the hands, under the seat.
I started with a rectangular scrap. I used pins and attached the arm piece from the bottom of the seat up and around the arm arch and back down.
Fully fitted, we carefully lifted her out of the chair and I began sewing the lines I was positive. The large slipcover is full of odd angles, so when it’s out of shape, it’s hard to tell where it’s gone.

When I got to an angle that was difficult or didn’t make sense, I stopped sewing and moved to another area. I realized that this proved that I had no idea what I was doing. A professional probably can’t do it. But it also proves that you can. By making a lot of guesses and checking.
After the first round of stitching, we put the cover back on and redid a few places that I need to explain more.
For the inside corners that we couldn’t pin, we used a colored pencil to mark the line to make sewing easier.
Then more stitching. At this point, I had sewn up most of the pieces and we were able to pull them out and preview our handiwork.

We still had to make a few adjustments, but the hardest part of them all was getting the cover on and off.
Then, cut a long thin piece that is the height of the pillow (+ 2 inches for seam allowance) and the length of the pillow circumference, making an extra 6 inches for the cover.
We lined up the corner of the cushion with the corner of the trim and pinned and stitched almost all the way through. The pillow crawled and did just that.
Zippers are scary so we decided to make it a sheath. ; ) We cut the upper and lower ends, fold them together and sew the side edges.

Last thing! I promise, for a super cute skirt, I cut 7 inch rectangles, then 2 for the width of the seat and 2 for the depth of the seat.
Then pin them to the bottom of the slipcover (right sides together) so the skirt rolls evenly on all sides.
This project took us a little less than one school day and one weekend to add the skirt. I’m so happy with how it turned out!
I chose horizontal with the back of the chair, the seat of the chair, the top of the arms and the front of the wings. It also gives a different look to the sides. I was good at it. Actually, I like his uniforms, but I really like some parts. It’s easy to sew something that has no direction but I can’t, can’t do it once. Solid is too hard for me.

The chair is now much lighter and brighter. I love the modern and neutral design.
I honestly can’t believe we did it ourselves. Not because it’s perfect, because it’s not. Apparently not. But I think it’s good. It also gives me the updated look I love when the job is done!
I hope this inspires you to give Slipcover a try. You really can. Find a friend who is willing to help and make his day fun. It’s been a great day and I’m so grateful. Just when I thought I knew everything about folding wings, this Horton chair came to teach me a thing or two.
At first glance, I thought this piece looked like any other classic wing. I’ve made many similar quilt designs, so I’m sure this project will be easy.

As it turned out, this chair was easy, especially after the wings. Let me tell you, there is a lot of S&S going on here!
In today’s post, I’ll share a problem I ran into with this project and how I solved it with a surprisingly simple solution.
Pay attention to this wing design. Instead of curving slightly inward, the outer wings curve slightly outward toward the center.
Naturally, the umbilical fold connecting the outer and inner wings is in that curved arch. Spoiler alert: This is the exact part that threw me for a loop.
Diy Upholstery Is Easier Than You Think
When I fit the wing back, I like to follow the folds of the upholstery to make sure I capture the beautiful curves of the seat.
Wrapping fabric around the inner wings to finish the outer wings is usually not difficult. When pinning, I make several free cuts along the curved seam. As a result, the fabric becomes loose and soft.
But in this seat, no matter how many times I tried, I could not roll the inner wing fabric smoothly. Every attempt I made to attach the piece to the outer wing, the fabric rippled or buckled or folded. Trust me, it’s not pretty
I was able to straighten the fabric in one area and a new fit problem arose in another area. I found that following the upholstery seam didn’t work.

I will never use my customer’s yard for another round of troubleshooting. So, I did what I always do when I need to solve a challenging fitness problem. I created a pattern.
Using a solid fabric of the same weight as my client’s fabric, I cut out large pieces and began to reattach the wings. I feel free to experiment, mark the pattern, and make mistakes without worrying.
Once I stopped trying to force the inner wing fabric to go where it didn’t want to go, I figured out how to quickly fix the problem: move.
