I am totally stumped on something that I really should know how to do, but I don't!!
The IKEA chair in the above picture is about 8 years old and the beige cover has seen far better days. It really needs a new one and has been on my 'to do' list for months.
It looks fine without it's padded cover - but it's not half as comfy.
So, I'll make one I said confidently, taking the cover off.
So I studied it, and looked at it, scratched my head and thought about it and realised......I have no idea where to start!
I want it pretty much the same style, so that it just slips on and off and I even brought this bargain, really thick upholstery/curtain ticking fabric from an ebay shop (£15 inc p&p for 3 metres!) to make the cover out of.
And now I am stuck. I don't want to chop into the ticking and then do it all wrong.
So... do I take the old cover apart and try and make a pattern from it?
Do I make a cover that goes over the old cover or do I start from scratch (eek!). It's the idea of all the layers of wadding, front and back fabrics that confuses me and the order to sew it all in (and I make quilts so this should be simple right?!).
I will be eternally grateful for ANY help offered!! Thank you.
