We love the ‘new’ look on our Kid’s table and Chairs thanks to our ‘Recycled Denim Chair Covers’! The best part is they are easily removed and completely washable!
We used one leg off each of the 2 jeans to make each panel. My Mum simply ran her overlocker around each raw edge of the cut panel, then folded down the top flap of the jean panel at the length of “A” (inside out) and sewed down each side (using a ‘Denim’ heavy duty needle). To make them fit snugly Mum sewed a triangle tab inside each top corner. Mum also sewed some black straps to the bottom corner of each panel to help secure the covers to the chairs.
Then came the FUN part – cutting and sewing on the pockets. We tried to add a good variety of large and small pockets to help store different sized items…you can choose as many or as few as you like.
Lastly, my Mum made some mini chair cushions using some more recycled denim. These cushions make the chairs very comfy to sit on and are also all removable for washing – we also added some ties to secure them to the seat.
We hope this has inspired you to dust off the sewing machine a whip up a set of these covers…or maybe you have a friend or family member who can whip you up a set?
