How to make slip chair arm covers?

Answer

Choose some upholstery material that matches or complements your favorite chair and make your own covers to slip over the arms and protect them. You can either make a muslin pattern, or you can make chalk lines on the fabric. Start by measuring the depth of the arm and the length you want the slip cover to fall. Use these measurements to cut a rectangle of your fabric, then center it over the arm and mark the center. Use another square of fabric to trace the shape of the front of the arm, then cut out the shape, adding 1/2 inch for seam allowance. With right sides together, sew the front to the prepared rectangle, matching centers. Trim and hem all edges.
