Given: a chair made by Ikea named Patrick. Serves regularly for about 10 years, Of course, it has worn out, has undergone several restorations.

Objective: to make your favorite work chair look good.

Solution: it was decided to decorate the frayed parts of the chair along the contour of the seams with a printed linen cloth. For this I choose dense unbleached linen. The main problem is that linen is not elastic, so you need to try to make a fairly accurate pattern. For this I decide to take off my own cover.

I take out the clips that tighten and fix the cover.

Patrick's giblets turn out to be quite difficult, but there is no turning back, I analyze further:

As a result, we have a naked foam Patrick and the ability to wash the cover for the first time in 10 years? (of course in cold water). The fabric on the cover is very high quality, resembles felt and is quite strong, but the time of sitting on the chair has done its job - the fabric is frayed.

After washing, I straighten the cover on the table and make an approximate pattern of the part of the cover that interests us from the newspaper.

I cut the fabric in one piece, despite the fact that in the original, the inner part consists of three parts.

Image
Image

Now the most enjoyable part of the process is to select a stamp and print the design onto the fabric.

Image
Image

I stop my choice on a geometric pattern. On a new, untested triangle stamp.

Image
Image

Any geometric ornament requires precise execution. Therefore, I figure out in advance how much of it will fall into the seams and how it will supposedly look on the armrests. Choice of color - black, to match the main fabric. I distribute acrylic paints and print a drawing.

Image
Image

By the way, if I decided to completely redraw the cover and make it from a similar fabric, the result would be worse. In combination with the main fabric, the ornament looks not too colorful.

Image
Image

The fabric is ready, but it looks too strict, I decide to "dilute" the ornament with several bright triangles.

Image
Image

The next step is to put the cover back on Patrick and manually sew the center segment to the seams of the cover. I use a semicircular needle for this.

Image
Image
Image
Image

Now you can pull and secure the cover, as it was at the beginning. Together with the cover, the sewn segment will also stretch. We need a stapler and paper clips 6-8 mm high.

Image
Image
Image
Image

So, the cover is fixed, it remains to pull and sew on the fabric. To do this, I pin off the upper seams with pins first, then the side seams and at the very end I fix the corners.

Image
Image

The next part of the process is quite time consuming, but the final appearance depends on it. I sew the fabric around the entire perimeter with black threads with a blind stitch, as planned along the existing seams.

Hooray! Is Patrick ready and will serve for the joy of the hostess?
