How to tie a Universal Satin Self Tie Chair Cover

Step 1: Position yourself behind your chair.


Hold the top two  of the cloth and drape the cover over the full chair. You will want to keep the cover center and make sure all sides of the chair are covered to the floor.

You may be wondering how much fabric to cover a dining chair is needed. You may need 6 to 7 meters of fabric to cover a typical dining chair. If it's a larger chair with skirting then you may need to add a few inches more to this length.

Position enough of the material to cover the chair. A good rule of thumb for correct fit is to move about 8-10 inches of material where the 2 corners are about halfway in the middle of the backrest.

Step 2: Holding the top 2 corners, pull back against the lower corner of the backrest and tie a double knot. 


Pull together the top to bottom, and then left to right for a perfect fit. You will want to keep the knot as low as possible since the fabric will pull itself up as you're tying the knot.
