I turned a beautiful printed tablecloth into a custom dining room chair slipcover to makover bare Henriksdal chairs from Ikea.
Chair covers are an important design product and have a protective purpose. Changing the cover is much easier than with an entire chair. Covers are even more important if you have a chair with fabric as a seat. If the change gets dirty, it's expensive, while changing the protective case is much easier and cheaper. Chair covers are quite easy to make yourself if you are familiar with knitting or crocheting. You need to measure the dimensions of your chair, choose a fabric material (preferably something durable and light for washing and ironing), ribbons and a sewing machine. You have to cut the material according to the selected design and create the ribbons to attach the protective covers to the chairs. On the Internet you will find many ideas on how to sew chair covers yourself. The colors of the protective covers can be combined well with the dominant colors of the room chairs, or you can choose contrasting colors. Chair covers can also bring a festive mood to your home, with Christmas colors or shapes or any other holiday. Some simple ideas for protective covers are the use of old pillow cases, T-shirts, sheets (preferably made of satin or linen), pillows that can be replaced with the covers and so on. Creating your own protective covers for chairs can be an entertaining activity. You can involve your kids to find the right idea, cut out the decoration for the slipcovers, and pin the ribbons and other steps. Overall, you can choose the style and design you like and proudly present your artwork.[gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="53999,54000,54001,54002,54003,54004,54005,54006,54007,54008,54009,54010"]
