What a great way to recover a chair with a slip cover and this blogger has a great one. It gives the chair a relaxed look and she does it by pinning on the chair itself . Great idea for a good fit. I can see using this idea on other furniture such as sofa or ottoman. She also uses a drop cloth. Very clever.

What a wonderful way to makeover a chair! I love this! I have a couch and chair that don't match at all. I might make two, one for the chair, and one for the couch. They would match and fit much better than the existing couch cover I have. This is great! I'm excited to get started! I have to go find fabric!

I have some sewing skills and a ton of patience so I think I can handle this project. I read thru the directions and they are basically simple. I have the material so I just need the push to get me started. I will start on the chair in the bedroom and depending on how it turns out, will do the others.

I bought covers for our two sofas, but they never actually fit properly. Each morning I had to tug them back into position, which soon got old and Ive now removed them. While this tutorial is a for a chair, obviously the same principle would work for a sofa (in theory anyway), so I might give it a go and see what I can come up with

Thank you for the DIY ideas,you really excelled at these,I have pinned some and send more to Facebook.
