Project Time: 45 minutes
Project Cost: $20
- FREE (came w/ chairs obviously!)- Old seat cushions
- $20 - 1 2/3 yds. fabric (for 4 chairs.. plenty of leftover)
- FREE (on hand) - Fabric scissors
- FREE (on hand) - Staple gun
My winning fabric lived at Joann's. I picked out a beautiful beige linen, and did everything I could to find a coupon. Luckily, it was a holiday weekend, and I was able to get 40% off!
Step 1: MEASURE - Place seat cushion face side down to determine the length to cut your fabric. Leave 4 inches extra on each side.
Step 2: STAPLE CENTERS - Once fabric is cut, center your cushion (still face side down). Fold over about 1/4-1/2" to create a nice even line, and staple the center of each side. PULL TIGHTLY.
Step 3: STAPLE SIDES - Continue to staple (and pulling tightly) leaving a little bit of room before reaching the corners.
Step 4: TRIM ACCESS - You will end up with access fabric once you reach your corners. Trim them down with fabric scissors, leaving roughly 3" left for you to work with. (Yes, I am in my PJ's.. it was a late night project!)
Step 5: CORNERS (TRI-FOLD) -
- Smooth out fabric and staple horizontally
- Smooth out fabric and staple at an upward angle
- Smooth out fabric and staple vertically
