As we said before, old, worn-out, stained or damaged chairs can make your entire kitchen or dining room appear unkempt. But there is one way to change the look of your dining area, and possibly make your chairs more comfortable to sit in, is to use chair covers. These can sometimes cost as much as replacing the chairs, however, so you can save a lot of money by making your own. You will need some sewing skills to complete the task surely.

The first step, measure the back of the chair with a tape measure from the top of the chair to the top of the seat. Then measure the width. Cut two rectangles of equal size. Make them two to three inches bigger than your measurements to allow for the seams. After that, drape remnant fabric over the chair according to your measurements and pin the pieces together at the seam lines. Cut the extra fabric while leaving a half an inch beyond the seam lines. Measure the seat of the chair and cut another pattern from fabric remnants. Pin the seat cover onto the fabric at the bottom of the chairs back.

Moreover, you have to remove the pattern from the back of the chair and mark the seam lines with tailor’s chalk. And cut out the pattern pieces from your cover fabric and sew the pieces together at the seam lines. Sew the right sides of the fabric together and turn it right-side-out to create a smooth seam. Further step, measure the base of the chair to create the skirt. Cut the fabric for the skirt to the desired length and to the width that you measured, then pin the right sides of the skirt together and hem the skirt onto the chair cover. Fold the skirt over so it hangs correctly, and stitch down the corner seam to join the edges of the skirt together and turn up the very lower edge of the skirt and place a 1/4-inch hem in the bottom. And now you can save your money and make a new chair.
