Stapling New Cover to Seat

&copy Leah French
  1. Turn your new seat cover right-side down. Place the seat cushion, also right-side down, on top of it.

  2. If you have pins to mark the corners of a patterned fabric, make sure they are aligned with the corners of the seat cushion.

  3. Starting with the top edge, staple once in the center.

  4. Repeat with the bottom edge, pulling the fabric tight before you staple.

  5. Repeat with each side, and keep pulling the fabric tight before you staple.

  6. Working one side at a time, staple from the center outward, until that side is completely stapled. As you staple, keep pulling the fabric tight, and smooth the fabric underneath from the center. Leave the corners unstapled.

  7. Repeat on all sides until everything is stapled but the corners.
