How Do I Make a Slipcover for a Wingback Rocker?

How can you make a slipcover for a chair? I have a overstuffed wingback rocker from my son's nursery I'd like to use in the living room. Also, there is a ottoman.

I have slip covered many chairs and couches. I made my own patterns by using news paper. Everywhere there is a seam out line it on the newspaper and add a half inch for seam allowence. Follow the outline of the cover that is already there. It usually takes seven yards for a chair and 15 for a couch. If the two pieces of furnature match, you can use the same side pattern for the couch as the chair and add for the middle.

Go to fabric departments and look in the pattern books, I know some of the pattern companies do have patterns for making slip covers. Also go online and google slip covers, I know there is a company that makes and sells slip covers. For me anything that I don't have to make is easier for me because of my age and bad shoulders.
