Take Measurements

The first step in reupholstering anything is to take measurements. Whether it’s a cushion for a chair or bench or an awning for sun protection, get out your measuring tape, a piece of paper and a pen and write out all of the measurements in as much detail as possible! Record the height, circumference, depth and width of the furniture. Remember to allow for a few extra centimetres for seams. For cushions, don’t forget that you will need two pieces of fabric of the same size for each side.
