- Fabric to fit chair
- Tracing paper or newspaper
1. Cut a pattern of chair back from tracing paper or newspaper pattern, allowing for 1/2-inch seam allowances. Use pattern to cut two rectangles from fabric.
2. Cut four 2-1/2 x 30-inch ties. For each tie, press under raw edges on long sides and one short side. Fold in half lengthwise, wrong sides together; topstitch around edges. Baste together raw ends of two ties.
3. Align raw edges with one short edge of a chair back rectangle (this will be the top of slipcover); pin ties 1 inch in from the edges. Place ties down right side of rectangle toward bottom of slipcover. With right sides together, pin the other rectangle in place and stitch all sides, leaving an opening at bottom for turning. Turn, press, and stitch opening closed. Topstitch around rectangle, 1 inch from edge. Place on front of chair and tie in place.
