To me the arms are the most fun to put on. It requires some attention to detail but the outcome is always amazing.
Pay close attention to your creases and make them very sharp. Be sure to make them in even intervals as you will want them to be the same on both sides. Don’t force the fabric to crease in a certain spot, you will find that if you just let it happen the fabric knows where it should fold.
Next roll the remaining fabric around the arm and pull evenly and firmly. Staple along the edge.
Since this is a straight line go ahead and use a cardboard strip to create your straight line. I actually just reused the original strip, I will pretty much re-use anything. Be sure to get it as close to the top as possible.
Staple in your padding. Again this is from the original. Re-use, re-use, re-use.
Fold your fabric down and you should have a lovely seam.
Pull tightly and staple underneath the chair and behind.
Once it is stapled in it should be firm and not loose at all.
Getting a professional look is all about the seams and the creases. The is where I spend most of my time fussing. This attention to detail will pay off in the end.
So far so good, now to tackle the pillows.
