  •  Here's How
    1.  Pin heavy cotton fabric over sections of the chair, one section at a time and pencil the shape
    *Use the inside of the piping or seam as your guide
    2.  Label each pattern piece so you know exactly where it is on the chair
    3.  Repeat on the arms, seat, back and base of the chair making sure to ADD and extra 2" around the base of each pattern (on the bottom of the chair)
    4.  Carefully cut out each piece along the drawn lines
    5.  Repin the cut pieces on the chair to make sure that it fits properly
    *Trim if you have to, but make sure the pieces are perfect
    6. & 7.  Layout and pin all of the pieces for the chair on the fabric and then cut
    *Make sure arms are mirrored in the pattern pin everything before you cut to avoid mistakes
    8. 9. & 10.  Pin the cut pieces to the chair and then glue them to the chair one section at a time with E-6000 Fabri-Fuse
    *Keep them pinned until they are dry
    11. & 12. Repeat with all sections making sure to add extra pins around the curves and glue around all of the edges of each piece
    13.  Remove the feet of the chair and glue the extended fabric under the chair
    14.  glue piping or cord in the crease between the piping and the fabric to cover the raw edges
    *Pin this in place until it dries
    15.  Pin and glue trim around the base of the chair

    I do upholstry all the time and I have glued some things but I mostly use staples, I never thought about  using glue/fabric fuse for the entire project! This is awesome. That fabric is everythang!!!
