How to recover a deckchair canopy from The Stripes Company
Step 1. Preparing Your Fabric
For most deckchair canopies you will need 2m of deckchair fabric cut in half to make 2 x 1m lengths which you will pin and then stitch together.
Step 2. Sewing Together
Iron the seam flat.
Step 3. Measuring Up
You will need approx 3m of bobble fringe.
Note the front and back measurements of canopy frame (back may be narrower)
To find the depth of the overhang subtract your canopy width from the width of the fabric and then divide the remaining measurement by two. Note this down. Do this for front and back.
Step 4. Creating The Corners
Fold the corners and using the previous measurements mark with a pin (remember front and back are different).
Repeat for all four corners.
Stitch and then cut off the surplus fabric from each of the four corners.
Step 5. Adding The Bobble Fringe
Start at a corner seam folding in the edge of the fabric the width of the bobble trim and pin all the way around the canopy before stitching.
Step 6. Finishing Off
Tacking the corners is optional.
