How to recover a deckchair canopy from The Stripes Company

Step 1. Preparing Your Fabric

Notes.

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 Deckchair Canopy Together

Notes.

Iron the seam flat.

Step 3. Measuring Up

Notes.

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

Notes.

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

Notes.

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 Deckchair Canopy Cover

Notes.

Tacking the corners is optional.

Enjoy your canopy

It is that easy! Create your own deckchair canopy cover with deckchair fabric and bobble fringe from The Stripes Company.

Part one of our fabric videos features Maria with a practical guide on how to use our deckchair fabrics with a few top tips thrown in.

Video Transcription:

Hello I’m Maria from The Stripes Company and I would just like to explain a little bit about all the different fabrics that we do.

First of all let’s have a look at our deck chair fabrics. It’s 45 centimetres wide, woven cotton and fits any deck chair. It’s not intended for prolonged outdoor use so it’s perfect for a chair that is kept indoors and brought out when the sun shines.

Let’s have a look at it on a deckchair.  Here is one of our standard teak deck chairs and we have covered it in one of our stripes. Traditionally stripes are always bright colours to allow for fading. The top rail is longer than the bottom rail to allow for the deck chair to be folded up. We supply complete deck chairs covered in any of our fabrics of your choice or, to fit one our canvases yourself we have made a great little video explaining this, just see the link in the description below.

Here is one of our teak directors chairs using the pull-out dowelling method of fixing the seat. As you will notice on the seat and the back the Stripes are horizontal instead of vertical. This is so that the warp threads are supported on either side of the seat. The stripes show the direction of the warp and if you sit on it by putting on the wrong way it will rip. We sell these with covers specially made for you in any of our stripes. Or we offer a made to measure service for your own chair as they are all different sizes and you can make sure that it will fit your chair properly.

Thank you for watching our video, it is the first of many, I hope you enjoy them all and please keep watching.
