This Tent and Tarp Canvas Makes the Best Slipcover

Big Duck Canvas Chair Slipcover

It doesn’t take much to completely change the look of your favorite slipcovered armchair.  A fabric update and a skirt redesign usually does the trick.

This project was a slipcover replacement for my customer Ali in Washington, DC. She sent me her original floral slipcover to be copied in #12 weight natural cotton canvas.

Her vision for her new cover? A classic look, versatile, durable and washable. That was easy to achieve with #12 weight canvas because it delivers all of that and then some.

Compared to regular 12 oz canvas, the #12 weight is tougher, smoother, stronger and less grainy. That’s because it’s made with 2-ply yarns and tightly woven. Designed for tents and tarps, this utility canvas also makes the best washable, long wearing slipcovers. You will love the price, too!
