To sew the slipcover for the muslin pattern, follow the steps in the drawing above. Finishing the details on a slipcover are the same as for garment construction. Hems look nice when invisibly sewn by and or topstitched on a machine. Buttons and loops work nicely for closures, as do heavy snaps or Velcro. And you can accessorize your chair with a pillow or two, using leftover or complimentary fabric.
Study your chair - You don’t need home-decorating experience to design a slipcover. But I do suggest you start by taking a good look at the piece of furniture you want to work on. Side or occasional chairs almost always come with their own distinct personality. And because the slipcover will leave the chair’s back, arms, and legs exposed, it’s nice to relate the slipcover’s style to the chair’s design. Or conversely, it’s fun to deliberately contrast the chair with its cover design, which is a good way to integrate an oddball piece of furniture into your decor.
Almost every house has one….the favorite chair. Sometimes it’s a recliner placed strategically in front of the entertainment center. While in other homes it a nice, deep armchair just made for reading books placed under a sunny window. But it doesn’t matter what your favorite chair’s style is if it is covered with pet hair, or badly stained from food accidents, or has prematurely darkened armrests caused by sweat or body oils. No matter what cleaners you use or how often you clean it, your favorite chair has long lost its good looks. You may have heard that you can use a chair slipcover to hide away its tattered and worn upholstery while protecting it from further damage. But just what things should you look for when selecting slipcovers for chairs?
You finally replaced that hideous sofa you got years ago. The new one cost a fortune but it looks striking sitting there in the living room. But how do you go about protecting your investment? An inexpensive sofa slip cover hide your sofa from everyday dirt and grime while keeping it looking fantastic for guests. Sofa slipcovers can be a great way for you to hide a bad or mismatched piece of old furniture or help save a new one.
