 Change Your Dining Room With The Seasons

With Easy-To-Sew Chair Back Covers


     Being able to change out your decor with the seasons is very easy with dining chair back covers.  These are simple "sleeves" that fit right over the back of your chairs.

     Here's how to make them work:How To Make Chair Back Covers

  1. Measure the height and width of the back of the chairs you wish to cover.  Don't forget to measure the depth on each side, because you will need the little bit of extra fabric for the width to accommodate the sides.
  2. Add one inch to the length and width of the fabric to allow for 1/2" seams.
  3. Lay your fabric out with the fold towards you.
  4. Measure the width of the fabric at the fold.
  5. Measure the length from the fold to the desired length (the fold will be at the top of your chair).
  6. Cut the fabric to the desired dimensions--including the 1/2 inch for the seams on each width side and length.
  7. With either a sewing maching or serger, sew down each side 1/2" crating a sleeve.  The fold should be at the top of the sleeve.
  8. Finish the bottom edge with either a simple hem like the one on the How To Sew Table Runners page, #4.
  9. Press it out and slide the sleeve on the back of your chair.
  10. If you like, you can make a chair tie to tie around the chair.

Very easy, very fast, and very pretty!
