Time: 1hr (approx)
Cost: $0 for 2 chairs

This is a good example of a small project that requires a good deal of skill and patience - and usually NEVER gets done. Bravo to Vickysecret! Head below the jump for all her pics, tools, and instructions and VOTING...


Tell us the tools and resources you used for the project:

This was a simple reupholster project, so the tools needed were minimal. I already had the leftover fabric (which was actually a bedspread from Urban Outfitters) from a padded headboard I made, as well as my handing sewing machine and sewing tools (thread, scissors, measuring tape) so not only was it an easy project, it didn't cost me anything.


Share step by step instructions for how you completed the project:

1. Measured out fabric using measuring tape for each chair.
2. Used sewing machine to sew a straight stitch across the longest side of the fabric so that it fit snug on the cushion like a sleeve.


3. Placed sleeve on cushion then folded the sides down like I was wrapping a gift then hand-stitched to finish it off.
