After you’ve made one side-chair seat cover, you might start eyeing other furniture in your home, and I encourage you to apply the basic principles you’ve just learned to more complex pieces of furniture. Or just stick to chair-seat covers. You can start collecting interesting chairs at flea markets and antique shops to apply your newfound craft. Let your imagination contribute to the beauty of the chair, and see how it can instantly uplift your surroundings. Then cozy up in your new chair.
Of course, choosing the fabric for your chair is also part of the fun. Fabric that you love but might not want to wear now becomes fair game for your furniture. Although dressmaking fabrics can work fine for a slipcover, upholstery fabric is made for the job and will stand up to lots of use and abuse. For your first project, choose a fabric that’s not too heavy, dense, or loosely woven, so that it will be easy to work with. If you want a washable slipcover, be sure to preshrink the fabric by running it through the washing machine.
Check out the Back - First look at your furniture’s basic design. With a couch, sofa or loveseat you need to notice the back design. A tight-back type has no cushions or pillows on the back. Next is the Attached-Cushion back which has a pillow or padded backstop sewn onto the chairs or couch’s back. The next step up is Multi-Pillow back which has removable cushions (2 or more) the across the back. But be realistic because even the best fitting Sure Fit slipcover may need additional padding or foam underneath to fill in the gaps between the back cushions or to fill out very narrow armrests.
It is very unlikely that a company will refund the cost purely because of customer measuring error, and it is also unlikely that an improperly measured cover will fit onto the sofa. The company should provide measuring guidelines, which should be followed rigorously. If there are any questionsArticle Search, designers should not hesitate to contact the company in question. They should be happy to provide clarification and guidance for getting the best fit out of the covers.
