Subject: Upholstering a chair - fabric help needed Date: 6/13/14 6:25 PM

I am reupholstering a chair and making a slipcover for it. This chair will always have a slipcover on it. I'm wondering what fabric to do the upholstery with. Since it will not show I don't want to spend a lot on it. Is a good muslin ok to use or should it be heavier. I don't really want to work with a heavy canvas if I don't have to. Any suggestions will be helpful! Thank you!

Yes, muslin is best for your project and can be covered later with upholstery fabric if you desire.
