My friends, Dave and Linda, sent me this photo of the canvas slipcovers I recently made for their poolside patio chairs. Poolside in December? Obviously they don’t live here in cold, snowy Michigan!
Once in awhile I make slipcovers for customers outside of my area. I don’t do it often because the pattern method I use requires me to have access to the furniture. But since the cushions were a simple rectangle box style and Dave was able to take accurate measurements from his existing covers I could easily do the project long distance.
I used #12 cotton duck/canvas in color Natural.
Although this fabric does not have a water, mold, stain or fade resistant coating, it’s still a good choice for outdoor use. That is if you live in warm, dry Phoenix like Dave and Linda. Lucky them 🙂 The thick #12 weight is woven super dense and is made with 2-ply yarns. It naturally resists a certain amount of moisture and will hold up well to the elements for a long while with proper care.
