Q&A with Flopsiewoo

Larri M asked:
Great job! You are an inspiration! I've always wanted to re-upholster a chair, but I'm scared. I'm afraid I'll get all the covering off and shout, "Holy frijoles! What have I done!?!" :)
Flopsiewoo answered:
not at all strip the chair then place where you want it to go and imagine the fabric and style , then measure up and start slowly any help i can offer just ask, it's a bit like a dress pattern really only not as much sewing and more staple gun use, but it is quite easy if you start on a simple chair... have a go
