Now, what are the ways to hack it? First of all, changing covers if they are spoilt or just don’t match your interior. Here you’ll need some sewing skills. You will need three pieces of fabric- 71”x27”, 36”x23” and 12”x23”, of course, of your choice to match the décor. First, start off by sewing the three pieces together, making sure to sew the right sides together. They’re not the same widths, so just make sure to center the pieces. Next, hem both ends by folding over the fabric 1/2″ and sewing in a straight line. Next, with the fabric lying right side up, fold the longer piece (36” long side) over, 10” past the edge. Then, fold the shorter piece over (12” long side) over, 3” past the edge. Start in the middle of one of the sides, and pin the edges together. The easiest way is to pinch the fabric together and pin as you go. When you get to the ends, just keep the line the same, leaving about a 2 inch excess on the top piece. After both sides are pinned, it’s time to sew the last two lines! Start about an inch from the end, and end about an inch before hitting the end of the fabric as well. The corners can be tucked in after you’re done, allowing for that seamless look. Flip that baby right-side out, and you’re ready to stuff in the seat cushion! The envelope opening will go under the seat cushion and out of sight. After you’ve put the cushion back on the chair, simply tuck the fabric into the two creases at the back of the seat and head cushion.
