I know my house is usually clean and tidy from the pictures I share here and on social media. I admit I’m a bit biased. In general, I like to clean and I like to have a clean, tidy, uncluttered house. But life happens here. He has high school students, a dog, two cats, and a wife who can handle messes better than me. Trust me, there are parts of our house that are untouched!

One of the most visible areas is the seat of the chairs behind our kitchen table. These are very popular and well used chairs and look very rugged. I was even a little embarrassed because they saw so many people. But that’s my stupidity. I doubt you really care.

The seats are in great shape, so seat covers are the perfect solution. These seats will fall apart again, so it’s important to wash them. Tutorials on how to make a cover like this can be found below…

First of all, I love working with this fabric. It has a great texture and is a great weight for quilting and light decorating. The best part is that I was able to purchase it for $6.50/yard. I need 2.5 meters/seat, so it’s less than $35 for two seats.

Another great thing about laundry is that it dries quickly. If there is a spill, I can wipe it with a wet cloth and it will dry in an hour. I can wash the cover as a whole, but I like to clean the area between washes.

The design of this seat makes it difficult to keep the cover in a tight spot, especially with the boys sitting on it. Most covers stay in place with the seat and back cushions and the hands help, but this is a large L that moves a little easier. They stay, but I have to adjust them here and there. The wings are so small that the fabric does not fit as well as a larger chair. I’m happy with how they turned out, given the seat shape challenges.

Yes, cats love this relationship! They climbed up behind the seats and came down again. The fabric is working well so far! It helps to have a bumpy texture to blend any extra lines.

Another project checked this list! I have two more seat covers and started making them over the weekend. He helps me make all the parts (pipes, etc.) so I just have to assemble them. Breaking down a big project into smaller parts doesn’t scare me too much.

It goes against my can-do personality, but I end up with better quality work because I don’t rush when I’m bored.

If a Parker Knoll classic has been passed down through the generations, or if you have a sofa or chair that started life just like you, we want to hear from you! Remember the quilts covered this time last year? I made a pair of silk to cover the dirty end chairs for our kitchen table…

When I washed them, the ends swelled and the seams came apart in several places. I’ve never had that happen to me, but I also don’t use laundry detergent and I don’t wash covers very often! Since they are used all the time, men often sit and eat on these chairs and cats like to sleep on them, I wash them every month or two.

I just bring the quilts into the sewing room and do the space, so it’s not much, but I wouldn’t use this fabric for quilts that need to be washed often. But it was cheap ($6.00/yard on sale), so I had to try it! I’ll make a little hole in the dirty seats! But if you ever make a veil, especially something with a bunch of lace on the back, sides, and hem, you know you really don’t want more than one if you can help it! I have to redo them eventually.

I used the same fabric (in a different color) in our bedroom and it was perfect. Since this chair is only used occasionally, there is no need to wash it. Sebastian likes to sleep in this chair, but I put a blanket on him so he can sleep.

The solution is a light quilt (7.1 or 4C22 from a fabric store) if the pieces of furniture are not used much and the cover does not need to be washed often. I also wouldn’t recommend using this laundry weight for accessories. It is not enough to withstand long-term use.

The great thing about using 7.1oz fabric for canvas covers is that you can sew them on a regular heavy duty sewing machine like the TA. If you’re using heavier fabrics, you’ll need to use a sewing machine or your needles will keep breaking, which can be frustrating. With gathers and shells, you can work on 5-6 layers of fabric that would take a standard sewing machine.

If you have the ability to sew with heavier fabrics, I recommend using canvas weight (11 – 16.5 oz.) linen or hemp. But I chose to use vintage hemp sheets. I used to sell them so there was a large supply. But you can find them on Etsy here and they are a great price for around $60-$70 each. If you need to buy more items, I suggest you email the seller and ask about buying in bulk. You can get a discount if you buy more.
