The right slipcover increases the beauty of the furniture. They maintain uniformity in all the furniture. The torn part of the furniture can be hidden with the help of a slipcover. They give a new luxurious look to the furniture. They protect the furniture from kids with muddy shoes or pets that shed. A good and right slipcover invites an individual to take rest. They give a professional decorative look. They give more comfortable feeling to the user. They turn inexpensive furniture into expensive furniture.
With proper material, any cover can give an outdated sofa a new look. Recession-savvy decorators are repurposing and reusing more than ever before, inventing creative new ways to use things like fitted slipcovers in decorating schemes. And best of all, they are able to do so at less expense, better results, and added protection for years to come. Using a cover actually increases the overall life of furniture, making it a smart investment decision.
Sew a chair-seat slipcover - Stitch darts in chair seat. RSs together, sew facings to cutout openings, trim seam allowances (s.a.s), turn to WS, and press. Make piping or use purchased trim. Sew piping to top and bottom of bands, trimming the cord from piping at seams. Turn under ends of bands. Topstitch. RSs together, sew top edge of bands to outer edges of chair seat. Finish skirt hem. Fold pleats where marked. Baste. Turn under side edges of skirt. Topstitch. RSs together, stitch skirt to bottom of band. Topstitch ends of skirt and band in one step. Sew button loops and buttons or other closures. Put slipcover on chair, sit, and relax. I do suggest making a pleated muslin for your chair if the legs splay dramatically and you’re unsure how deep to make the pleats. Make any other notes and marks on the muslin that will help you later on to match and sew the pieces.
If you have small children or pets, you know the wear and tear your furniture is subjected to. Kids spill, get sick, or rub their dirty shoes or hands on your sofa. The pets track in dirt and grime from outside not to mention all the pet hair. It's a wonder your sofas and chairs survive. When you use a furniture slipcover, you are protecting your furniture from all that mess. When your slipcover gets dirty, just remove it toss it in the washer and dryer. Now you have a fresh clean slipcover. It's kind of hard to toss the sofa or chair in the wash. Using furniture slipcovers will extend the life of your furniture for many years.
