Easy Homemade Chair Cover Ideas
A local blogger friend, Julie Blenner, asked me if I could make a cover for the IKEA HENRIKSDAL stool. She bought three for her new kitchen renovation and wanted a rug to match her style. All the covers in the market lack the beautiful design and feel that one would expect.
I’ve never sewn a Parsons chair cover before, but I know I’m up for the challenge. After all, it can’t be more difficult than a rear wing seat cover!
She chose this soft blue print from Magnolia Home Fashions. Similar fabric options are available on Amazon. You can find it here.
I fell in love with the fabric the moment I saw it. I know this would make a great cover for the IKEA HENRIKSDAL stool. A ticking band transforms a basic bar stool into a beautiful farmhouse style chair.

I started by putting the top on the seat and the right side down. I checked to make sure it stretched perfectly and the stitches were straight.
After finishing the parts, I put the seat piece on, making sure it all lined up.

Let’s face it, dining chairs are expensive! Also, it is increasingly difficult to find sturdy and high-quality chairs without spending a lot of money.
Sound Of The 80s: The Alan Parsons Project
My sister has had her dining room for a long time. Although the seat frame is in good condition, the microfiber seat upholstery has stains, water marks and cannot be cleaned.
To breathe new life into the chair, I made a simple dining chair cover using 100% cotton canvas in a neutral gray color from Canvas Etc. Canvas etc offers a variety of colors to give your dining room decor a new look! Wouldn’t a navy coat look great?
Keeping the quilt short keeps it loose and filling and would look great next to the curtain I knitted last year.
If your chair style is similar to these chairs, you can use the free printable slipcover pattern (below) to create your own design.

I recommend making a cover sample with the same fabric (or 100% plain cotton muslin) first to make sure the cover will fit your chair.

To begin, you will need to measure your chair and record the measurements. For comparison, you can also see the pictures below to see how I measured my chair. Here are the main criteria and some other things to consider:
For any size other than this, you can adjust the printed seat cover pattern. For example, if your seat back is only 20″, reduce the height of the pattern piece by 3″ using a pencil and ruler. Cut and adjust the pattern as you would sew from a long dress.

Next, make the pattern for the seat cover. This is a long rectangle that wraps around the seat and is sewn to the seat and back cover.
Print the cover sheet on an 8.5 x 11 sheet without adjusting the size. Arrange the parts of the books into complete pattern pieces and join them together. Cut around each design to cut onto the fabric. The cover is of three principles: back seat, seat and skirt.
Place the stitch on a flat surface and place one side of the pattern on the fabric, aligning the grain line.
Place the design on your piece of fabric (or use a board), then use a ruler to cut along a solid line. As mentioned above, it is recommended that you use scrap fabric to make a swatch before using the fabric.

Right sides together, fold back in half at the edge that will be at the top. With the sides lined up, sew the raw edges from top to bottom with a ½” seam allowance.
To make the seat back deep enough to fit, make a triangle shape at the top as shown and measure the width by making the stitch line 1″ long.
Turn the piece of fabric over and place it on the back of the chair to see how it fits.
If everything is good, continue and if it is too big, small or too small, change the cover pattern and repeat it.

Next, sew the seat piece to the front of the seat and the vertical sides together, using a ½” seam allowance. Be sure to center the seat (and match the notches).
Place the quilt on the bench to test the fit again before proceeding with sewing the skirt. If it fits well, continue sewing but if the seat is too big, too small or maybe damaged, adjust the pattern accordingly and repeat the swatch to check the fit again.
Fold the bottom edge up ½” and press the iron in place, then fold over the other edge ½” and press it in place. Next, fold and press the short ends of the ½” long rectangle skirt. Iron again, and finish the hem with a ½” seam allowance. Also, sew a ½” seam allowance down the length of the skirt.
Place the skirt and pieces right sides together and sew the pieces together if necessary.

Begin sewing the pieces together at CF (center front) with a ½” seam allowance and continue at CB (center back). Pay attention to all corners and pivots. Gently fold the skirt to the sides. All pivots to help form the fabric. 90 degree angle and to avoid sticking or tearing at corners.
Repeat for the other non-woven side, starting with CF and ending with CB. The skirt will fit in the back.
