Want to upholster a chair? It’s like wrapping a present.
Here’s what the chair looked like before. See how the fabric is discolored and worn? The chair has removable cushions for the seat and back, and the ottoman has a cushion attached to it.
For the seat and back, spread the fabric out, place the cushions on top and wrap em up. Then go to town on the fabric with pins and sew right on top of the pinned areas. Leave an edge open to easily remove the fabric and throw it into the wash when it gets dirty. I’m glad I had the foresight to make the upholstery removable because Leela spits up a ton.
For the ottoman, use elastics on each corner for a snug fit; like a fitted bed sheet!
This is the chair I use for Leela’s monthly picture. Here’s a sneak peak of her at three months! All dressed up and nowhere to go.
Any upholstery successes out there??
