From a practical standpoint, you may want to use slipcovers to match a room to the season. Or perhaps you’d like to simulate an upholstered look, either temporarily (while you decide on larger issues of your decor) or as a final design. (For some ideas, see Dress up your chair.) In any case, I’d like to show you just how easy it is to breathe fresh air into your home or apartment with the simplest of slipcovering projects: a seat cover for a beloved or interesting side chair. And for those of you who are new to sewing, don’t worry. Making a chair cover is an ultraeasy way to practice basic sewing skills. Combine sumptuous fabrics, exotic closures, outrageous trims, different pleat treatments, or even your favorite embellishments.
Slipcover fabrics: Slipcovers are the protection layer to any furniture. They have a nickname called clothing for furniture. They protect them from dust and stain. They can be removed according to the users wish. They can be easily washed and cleaned. They are fitted loosely or snugly to the taste of the user. They are used to decorate the house. They have varieties of colors and designs. They are very popular in the modern days. They have a smooth and snug-fitting finish. The slipcovers give uniform look to all the furniture in the room.
What to look for in a Chair Slipcover. A chair slipcover is a specially designed piece of fabric that is used to cover and protect the original upholstery of a chair. Chair slipcovers can come in many different colors and styles. But the two most basic designs you need to be aware of and understand are the terms: ready-made and tailor-made. A ready-made chair slipcover is a semi-fitted mass-produced covering that can work with a wide variety of chair styles and sizes. Ready-made coverings became very popular in the 1960’s when the cost of making these one-piece coverings became less than the cost of getting them hand tailored. The type of chair slipcover is easily found online or in specialty retail stores.
You just finished moving in and have collapsed on the sofa. But once you are sitting down you realize just how out of place your old sofa looks in your new place. The color is all wrong and the fabric pattern sticks out like a sore thumb. But you just moved in and you still have bills to pay and you can’t afford any new furnishings. But how can you invite anyone over when your sofa looks so bad? This is why a new slipcover for your sofa in the right matching colors with a different fabric can make all the difference in the world.
