Anyone that has lived in a dorm room in the last 3-4 years either has one or knows someone that does. I've been trying to come up with a plan to reconstruct/make new my nice blue sky and cloud butterfly chair cover (I think it is denim or canvas material) into one of those cushioned/puff butterfly chair covers. If you don't know what I'm talking about here is a link to an example of one: http://www.laytners.com/id-573/prod_img/pc0002t.gif
Does anyone know how one could accomplish this? Here is what I have "researched" so far by looking at the puff/cushion covers at stores, and by thouroughly examining a puff chair that my friend owns:
a) if you go to the link I provide you will clearly see how the chair, although "stuffed" (as in with some kind of fiber filling), is not lumpy in appearance. This would lead one to assume that there is some sort of rectanglular foam padding to give the cover/cushion its shape.
b) all of the cover "fronts" examined seemed to have two sections: the seat area and the area where your back would rest against.
c) the back of the cover has the same little flaps found on regular covers that hold the cover over the frame of the chair
d) in order to make such a puff chair cover, I would think you could use your original cover as the backing of the puff cushion (it would already have the flaps sewed on and be the right size and everything) and then somehow sew a "front" of the cushion all the way around, while leaving one area open to insert the stuffing material. This is where I get stuck. Should the "front" be sewn differently (in shape, or maybe with darts or something) than the back was constructed? Thoughts?
