The chair cover consists of one piece. To fix the cover to the backrest, it is folded over at the upper edge about 15 cm to the rear. At the front seat edge come about 10 cm for the envelope down. For cutting, take wrapping paper or a large sheet of newspaper and remove the shape of the backrest. Add 2-3 cm of width to the top of the backrest plus 15 cm for the cover. For the seat, record 50 cm length x 44 cm width plus 10 cm for the front cover. Cut out both parts and glue together. Re-adapt the finished paper cut to the chair shape.
Important: Determine the direction of the teddy plush before cutting. When cutting, the fabric should lie so that the plush hairs lay down when brushing towards the seat.
