How to Reupholster an Office Chair

In this post, I'll show you how to reupholster an office chair with tufted cushions, so that it looks brand new. Many office chair tutorials only cover flat cushions, so this one will help you give your cushions some shape. The method I’m showing you involves a little bit of sewing, but you could skip the sewing and have the fabric slightly less fitted. I’ve added an update at the end of this post to show how the reupholstered chair has held up over the last two years of everyday use.

Pattern Review Simplicity 2414: One Hour Skirt, Two Yards of Fabric

Make this easy beginner pattern from Simplicity in one hour with two yards of fabric or less. The nice thing about it is that even if you're making the biggest size (size 24), it only takes two yards of fabric. Many skirts take 4-5 yards, which can get expensive, so it's nice to see a skirt that can be made relatively cheaply. Note that the one hour time estimate does not include cutting out the fabric.
