Recover a Padded Chair | How to

How to Easily Recover a Padded Folding Chair - video tutorial from Whitney Sews


A few years ago I picked up a great sewing table and padded chair at a garage sale.  I have used both countless times since then and the vinyl on the chair started to split open.  After several months of intending to recover the seat I fiiiiinally got around to it…and it turned out perfect!

I used a quatrefoil printed laminated cotton that I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby.  It’s durable and can be wiped clean when needed.

The recovering process is really simple.  I only recovered the seat itself and left the back rest as is since it was still in good shape.
