So here is the main thing you will need.. lots of patience
I totally forgot to get lots of pictures,
probably because I was too busy quietly leaving the room to sit on the couch
with my face buried in the pillows.
So, here is the story of how I turned this.....
First off, I got the chair from a thrift store.
Then, I went to ikea, and found a king size duvet cover for only 12 bucks.
I was excited, and seriously thought this would be a synch.
Now, what you do, is take the cushions off, and lay the fabric over the couch, and cut it in fitting pieces.
But, I had one big piece, that was the body of slipcover, then cut smaller pieces for the arms, and sides, basically following the chair's seams.
Now, pin those together, then take the thing off and sew together.
At this point, my chair cover looked like a dust cover from an old haunted house.
I tried to figure out what to do.
I crumpled the whole thing up and left it for about an hour.
Then, found my bravery, and went back.
The whole thing was just drooping over the chair like a big sheet.
So, I started pleating, and making small stitches. The stitches kept coming out,
so I grabbed my fabric glue.
Best decision of the day.
I made pleats to make it all fit together, and glued. I held it for about 1 minute then let go.
The glue held on strong.
I used Fabric Fusion. This stuff is strong, and washable.
So, my chair was finally starting to come together!
The only problem was the bottom part.
My original chair had legs, and I just couldn't figure out how to make it look nice.
The fabric was just hanging there, all jagged and ugly.
So I thought, what do I do to hide messes?
I cover them up.
That's what bed-skirts are for! (Right?)
So, I made a skirt for the chair!
I bought some velcro tape, and reinforced it with some sewing.
I attached some to the chair, making it tight so the chair fit together even better.
Then I attached the skirt, and it actually looked good!
Now, when I need to wash it, I can take the skirt off, then slip the whole thing off!
I used the left over fabric, with the bulk of the design for the pillow case and cushion case, and some matching fabric for some cute throw pillows.
In retrospect, it was easy enough..
and I'm so sorry there are not many pictures, this might be the most disappointing tutorial ever.
