Dora has been a part of my living room decor long enough.
We bought this small kid’s foam chair for our girlie a couple Christmas’ ago, and it’s been passionately loved and battled over by my two kiddos ever since. When my upstairs neighbor offered me a second chair suffering from a broken zipper, I leaped at the chance to recover them both. It only took yard of Ikea fabric (for each chair) to turn these bad boys from loathsome to pretty fresh and cool. My husband has affectionately scorned the fact I made matching mini pillows, but secretly he loves it. And my kids both got a real kick out of them–so I’m justified.
To recover these chairs, I seam-ripped the old covers and then used them as pattern pieces to cut from the new fabric. I then draped my cut pieces over the chair to make sure I understood how it went back together, pinned it, and sewed.
