1.Use the original leather cover to make a perfect pattern on the fabric for your new cover. Add a 1/2 inch around all edges for seam allowances.

2.Take note that the bottom fabric should be as visually interesting as the upper part of the fabric. Always choose your main fabric and complimentary fabric wisely.

3.Sew the top, middle and bottom portions with flat felled seams. This is to ensure extra strength.

4.Baste piping on the top fabric and corner pockets to the bottom fabric.

5.Stitch all the edges through the under side, leaving an opening to turn the fabric.

6.Place the cover on the leather butterfly chair from NuBuck to determine the fit and strength.

7.Place the chair in a cozy corner and wait for the family members to be surprised.

WARNING : Never guess at measurements to avoid ending up with a cover that does not fit.
