Making A Parsons Chair Slipcover

A local blogging friend, Julie Blanner, asked me if I could make an IKEA HENRIKSDAL countertop. She bought three to fit out her new kitchen and wanted covers that matched her style. All the slippers on the market lacked the charm and sense of custom that he was expecting.

I had never sewn a priest’s chair cover before, but I knew I was up for the challenge. After all, it doesn’t weigh more than a wingback seat cover!

She chose this soft green ribbon from Magnolia Home Fashions. There is a selection of very similar items available on Amazon. You can find that HERE.

I fell in love with the story as soon as I saw it. I knew it would make an amazing IKEA HENRIKSDAL counter cover. A checkered stripe transforms basic bar stools into beautiful farmhouse chairs.

You can use these instructions to sew any size seat cover. The measurements listed above are specific to the IKEA HENRIKSDAL bar stool, but the same recommendations can be applied to any teacher’s chair, dining chair or bar stool. Just adjust the measurements to your specific piece.

I started by placing the top on the chair, right side down. I checked to make sure it was stretched evenly everywhere and that the threads were straight.

After sewing the side pieces, I attached the seat piece, being careful to join all the threads.

Dining room chairs are an important part of dining room design. This week I redid my priest seats by making covers for their priest seats. It’s week two of the One Room Challenge and I’m excited to share what I’ve been working on as part of my Scandinavian living room. If you missed the first week, click here to see the previous one and my design inspiration.

I started things off by making ten Parson’s chair slippers in my living room. I love these black leather Parson chairs for the last ten years. They are comfortable, in good shape and easy to care for as the leather can only be wiped when necessary. I wanted to keep the beautiful parts but modified them to match our new light paint color. We decided that wipes would do the trick, they remain comfortable, beautiful, and with removable covers, they are easy to care for. Here is the front camera image.

We argued about buying slippers. But these chairs were bought from a supermarket and are no longer available. I couldn’t find the exact quilt size I wanted as it runs a bit smaller than most. After debating buying readymades and customizing them, I figured if I was going to sew, I might as well do it myself.

At first I was planning to make long covers, but as I was looking to buy them, I saw shorter ones and they seemed more modern.

I had the fabric so this was a very low budget project for me. The only thing I had to buy was extra yarn and velcro, both of which I found at the dollar store.

The fabric I used was actually a large drop of fabric from the hardware store. These were used as tablecloths and instead of being thrown away, I took them home. After a good bath, they were ready to go.

The hardest part of the project was starting the model. I’ve seen many examples online where people just cut and pin to make quilts, but when I had to make ten, I knew I’d be better off with a pattern I could reuse over and over again.

To make my pattern, I spent some time researching and figuring out how to do a small amount of stitching. I came with the back piece and the seat piece. The only downside to this pattern is that it requires large pieces of fabric, but that’s where fabrics work best.

I started by taping a newspaper to the chair as a cover. Then I cut the seat carefully looking for seams. Next, I spread out the newspaper, folded it in half, and straightened the edges.

I placed the newspaper pattern on thick white paper and traced it. Then I added a half inch seam allowance and cut the pattern out of white paper. The white paper allowed me to add a seam allowance to the back but also not stain the light newspaper.

The right edge of each pattern is the fold line, so the material is folded in half and the pattern is placed on top. Once everything is cut, you open the fabric and you have the whole piece, with two sides matching.

After I had my pattern, I cut out my first cover. I used pins to attach the fabric in place and adjusted it as I went along. For my first attempt I used a disappearing marker along the needle lines so I knew where to sew.

After each joint, I tried the seat back cover and adjusted it if necessary. The first cover took the longest but I knew once I found my pattern and method it would be quick and doable.

For the second chair, I made some changes to the model, then cut and glued it to the other chair. This time I used the needle lines as the sewing line.

After finishing the second one I was confident in my pattern and could cut several at once, once I improved my technique both pinning and sewing became faster.

To finish the covers, I removed the original seats that had velcro and added velcro to the new covers so they could wrap around the sides of the seats. This will make it easier to remove and wash them in the future.

The covers are not very good. There are definitely differences between them, there are uneven seams, and some covers don’t sit well everywhere. But it had to be done.

The whole room already seems simple. I can see the chairs being the perfect backdrop for the things I photograph in the room in the future.

I think I can repurpose the wooden legs into something simple? But then again, a little black in the room can be a good thing. I will leave them for now and see how they look as the room develops over the next 5 weeks.

I’m so glad this project only cost me about $10 for the yarn and velcro. Even if you have to buy fabric, this will be a really cheap way to breathe new life into your old shepherd’s chairs. Will you throw away the old chair? But did you know that there is an amazing trick to cover up all the scratches, dirt and tears on your seat and make it look brand new? Easy – seat covers!
