I've been working on recovering a couple of patio chairs, here are links to the earlier stages:
Before the chairs were recovered
Making the pattern and assembling the chairs
Now, here's a look at how the chairs were completed!
My last post about recovering the lawn chairs ended with the fabric sleeve (new seat cover) being slightly too large. So, I sewed it smaller (about 1/2") and then reassembled the chair.
Since I was now satisfied with the fit of the cover it was time to sew the fabric at the bottom of the chair together.
To do this I folded the raw edges to the inside of the chair and used clips to keep it in place. Then, with an upholstery needle and sturdy thread, I hand stitched the fabric together.
Pretty simple. Here's how it turned out:
I have an extra yard or so of fabric, so I'm thinking about making little removable pillows to tie on to the back of the chair. We'll see!
