Do you have one of those old, ugly, brown leather office chairs that the "leather" has cracked on? Well, I did and it scratched my legs when I sat on it.
So, one day I decided to recover it. It was fairly easy. I used Moda fabrics. I covered the seat with a layer of batting and the fabric and covered it just like you do a seat on any chair. Pull it taunt underneath and staple it. Remember, to work from center top to center bottom and then center left to center right. Then work in the fabric in between your staples. That way, you won't have an excess of fabric at one point.
Lay the chair down and trace the back on newspaper. Add a seam allowance. I added a pocket to the back of mine. Add a layer of batting on this part also. You know me, I had to add to it so I added vintage lace doilies, coordinating cording to the bottom, a ruffle and a strap across the back. Look at the beautiful vintage buckle I used.
So now, my chair looks better and definitely sits better.
Till next time, Judy
