I love a deal.
And $1 is a deal.
But this deal was filthy. And ripped.
Upon first glance while at the thrift store (the same day I bought the sweater for this), I nearly walked away. But then remembered that I had some sturdy fabric at home. Suddenly it was worth a $1.
****Keep in mind, that you can recover so many things. Swings, chairs, high chairs, etc. So when you’re out looking at yard sales or in thrift shops (or in your storage shed), just look to see what kind of shape the base/frame is in. And then use the original cover as a pattern.
First, cut the seat off of the metal frame. (Cut carefully along the seam lines of the casing in the back. You’ll need the shape of that casing later on.)
And then line up the edges of both curves a little at a time, and pinned them together as you go. (Start at the center pin and work your way out to the edge. Then start back at the center and go out in the other direction.)
(Once all are in place, place on the metal frame and see how it will fit. If you need to adjust the placement of these little casings, do so now.) Then sew the bottom edge (or pinned edge) into place.
Then, attach the start of some bias tape……
