"Drape" a muslin pattern - Have on hand pieces of muslin large enough to accommodate each pattern piece needed for your chair slipcover. Position the chair on the floor or on a table so that you can work comfortably. Smooth the fabric over the seat; pin folds, ripples, and puckers into darts where needed. Mark the centerline from back to front, then work on one-half of the chair. Trace a stitching line from the chair seat, mark around the arms and back, cut out with a seam allowance, and clip corners. Use strips of muslin to make bands, positioning and pinning them to the seat.
Choose Cotton or Polyester Blend Slipcovers for High Traffic Areas. If your couches and chairs tend to get a lot of traffic in the family room, your best bet is to pick a slipcover that is cotton or a polyester blend. This is because this type of material will hold up the best when it comes to wear and tear. Although it may wrinkle, it is very simple to run an iron over the slipcovers and the wrinkles come right out. You can find inexpensive cotton and polyester slipcovers as well as higher end cotton slipcovers.
