Patio chair seat covers


I found a great bistro table and chairs set on Craigslist for our patio at the cabin.  We have a fabulous deck that faces west and overlooks both Hood Canal and the Olympic Mountains.  But as we found last week, sometimes it's just too hot to sit on the deck that faces west until the sun goes down.

There's a small patio in the garden on the east side of the house ... where we keep the grill.  It makes for a perfect sunny spot in the morning for breakfast, or a great afternoon spot to stay out of the sun (and heat).
This table and chairs (4 of them) are from a restaurant that went out of business.  I wanted to make seat covers.  I found outdoor fabric on sale at JoAnns this week and was able to leverage a 40% off coupon for the 1" fill.

I looked on line for a tutorial, but didn't find anything particularly helpful.  So I just traced the outline of the seat on paper and then used that to cut the 1" fill and the top and bottom fabric.

Stitched the seat cover together with the wrong sides together, turned them right-side out, stop stitched around the edges and then stuffed them with 1" fill.  
They were pretty simple to make, all 4 took less than an hour.

The back is a coordinating solid fabric.
We'll be taking them out to the cabin this weekend ... looking forward to breakfast in the sun!

Hope you had a good weekend.

All the best
Lisa

  1. They look great. If the "fill" made to be used outdoors?
