I have ikea dinig chairs with cream cusions/ padded seat bit. They are looking a bit shabby after the dc effect. I could wash them but I'd rather have a change and patterned fabric. What do I look for in a fabric?TIA
I want to re-cover my chairs. What do I look for in a fabric?Bloody iPhone + sleeping dd on me = crap spelling!
something hard wearing. upholstery cotton. avoid chenille, velvet or cord as they don't wear well. buy the fabric and pre-wash it before doing any sewing to allow for any shrinkage.
Cheers! Where can I buy upholstery cotton?
try dunelm. fabric of that weight will be expensive to post if you buy online.
