Here are a few answers to some frequently asked questions:
I feel that an average sewer would be able to make this chair (after all, I am pretty much just an average sewer myself). It is probably too advanced for a beginner but you don’t need to be an expert. Much of the sewing is straight lines, but there are a few curves around the armrest that can be a little tricky.
All the materials for these chairs can be found at JoAnn's, including the foam. The foam comes by the yard with the right width and depths of the pattern. Just take the foam (you will need a four inch and a five inch) to the counter and they can cut them to the right lengths.
The cost varies depending on your choice of fabric and other materials. When shopping at JoAnn’s, I always use coupons and wait for the foam to go on sale at 50% off before buying it.
The chair cover does not fit the standard Pottery Barn chair foam inserts. The chairs are similar sizes, but I designed my pattern to fit the foam that was readily available.
