Recovering Deck Chairs?

My deck chairs are cloth with a small rope type tubing inlaid on each side. They are coming apart, but the chairs are still solid. Does anyone know how to redo them?

I do know how to avoid this when things are new. Some Fabric paint on the back side painted over the stitches makes the stitches hold up longer. Also makes buttons sewn on your clothing last longer too..."A stitch in time saves nine, lol."

The easiest way to have new covers for your deck chairs are : 1) Buy new ones, or 2) Take them to an upholstery or auto seat cover shop to have them re-do them. BUT. With patience and a few sewing skills, you can re-cover them yourself. Just take the cushions apart and use the old pieces for your pattern. Be sure to purchase "outdoor" fabric so that it will last the longest, and get new cushion insides if they need it.

Just noticing the cushion construction as you dismantled them for patterns will give you the guide to assembling the new ones. (If you get stuck check out the library for books on upholstery.) Be fearless and patient with yourself, you'll do a fine job. And remember that practice makes perfect--- the second one will be even easier.

If you know how to sew just make a pattern out of the covers including the piping, out of waterproof fabric, you can also add a zipper so you can take the covers on and off. Dianne
