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.
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.
When Should you Buy Sofa Slipcovers? Your sofa is a wreck. The seat cushions are awful and the armrests look bad from years of sweaty palms and hair products left behind when you used it as a head rest for afternoon naps. You have done everything you can think of. Steam cleaned, shampooed and vacuumed. While the sofa smells almost brand-new, it is hopelessly stained with dark discoloring that no deep cleaning seems to remove or lighten up. But you can change the entire appearance with one simple sofa slipcover.
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.
