Making A Loose Cover For A Chair – Long before I started my slipcover business, the only way I could make a slipcover that fit well was to make a muslin pattern.

This exact template method made sense to me. This is a technique I learned in fashion design school. Creating the muslin was the first step in turning my designs into custom fabrics, so why not use it to pattern my chairs and sofas? Well, my finished covers looked beautiful, but the process seemed too long!

Believe it or not, I bought this chair at a thrift store for $3. This is an amazing deal and I couldn’t resist a gorgeous thrift store makeover!

The chair was still in good condition, but I wanted to make a cover for it because I didn’t like how it looked in my living room.

And it was embarrassing to sit on the microfiber cloth and leave footprints when I woke up!

You want a durable, thick fabric that can withstand the constant wear and tear of living in it. The material should be easy to clean and strong enough to hold the sewn seams.

Upholstery fabric is specially made to resist wear and tear. It is strong enough to hold the seams together even under the pressure of people sitting on the cover. Its material is also wider than other fabrics, so you can cover more surface.

2. Now pull the fabric over the front of the seat. Make sure the wrong side of the fabric is facing you and the right side is facing the seat.
