Lawn Chair Covers
My lawn chair covers were suffering from sun rot and needed a lot of help. In one afternoon, I crafted four chair covers from some worn jeans I had on hand.
Approximate Time: One afternoon
- sewing machine
- sewing thread
- old jeans
- tape measure
- large safety pins
- Measure the dimensions of the top part of the chair and the bottom part of the chair. Cut the jeans to these dimensions for each chair needing a cover.
- The jeans I had weren't wide enough for the chair covers, so I had to piece them together to get the width I needed and sew together before cutting to fit.
- Sew the top part separately from the bottom, then sew a seam to connect the front part. The back will be open to allow you to slip the cover over the chair.
- Once attached, pin the back opening to secure onto the chair.

This is a wonderful idea! I live in Houston and we have a dreadful time with sun and rain damage to our chairs. I love your idea. And jeans are machine washable.

How clever. Old or thrift store towels would work well also but the jeans idea are so cute. Thanks. :)

Very nice job! They look very nice, durable, probably won't fade as easily!
