Armchair with cover

The first version of the outboard seats - with cover. No difficulties here and there in particular, will need a little time and a small arsenal. First of all, useful to the hoop of steel (∅90 cm) and good strength of the fabric and a half to three meters long. In addition, the purchase or Non-woven fabric dublerin, alternatively you can take the pants braid. It will take eight-meter sling and iron ring through which a chair is attached to the ceiling. Also useful metal buckles (4 pieces) and sewing supplies, centimeter and scissors.

The first stage - sewing bag. Carrying his own hands cutting, be very careful, take your time - because of carelessness you have to change everything again. If you have not decided on the exact size, you can leave allowance little more - they can always be cut.

So, take a segment of fabric and cut out of it two squares of equal size: the length and width of one and a half meters. Each part consists of four times. Note the central angle of the fourth part of a circle whose radius is 65 cm. The labels are beginning to draw the line and cut out a circle on the same parameters. Now turn from the circles formed by four centimeters inside and draw a line.

The second step - mark up the holes for slings. We carry it on the first lap. Fold the material four times and iron. Focus on the folds. The first two lines to be the inclination angle with respect to the fold and forty-five degrees and the other two - thirty. Noting the corners, expand the circle and iron it again. Now there are axes which are pointers to the locations of the slots under slings.

On axes formed check all slots. A rectangle with a height of fifteen centimeters, width - ten. Inside these boxes to do the layout of the letter Y, it is for her and have to be cut. Fold the circles together and make sure that equity yarns of different parts do not match, then the case will keep better shape. The markup placed on top of the circle. Now put them together and make a cut at the first and the second circle.

The fourth step is bent "petals" on the wrong side of the hole. Obkleyte fleece rectangle or Dublerin - it is necessary to ensure that the fabric is not crumbling. Then Do the full notch that otstrachivaem on the edge of the retreating a few millimeters.

The fifth stage - retreating slightly from the edge (four centimeters), it is necessary Sew the two circles together, leaving an opening to insert the hoop. Oversize incised, giving it a jagged shape around the perimeter. Now we need to turn to the outside cover and razutyuzhit. Then you need to cut and strip syntepon sheathe their hoop. This is best done in two layers. Ready steering frame, insert the cover. Now sew circular parts, moving to the edge of the ring. Staple need at a distance of seven centimeters from the edge.

The next step is to turn inside out the edge of the hole, which is not yet sewn - it is left specifically for the insertion of the hoop. Then incised allowances and pinned them together from the front; they should not distort the overall geometry of the circle. Now sew the edges and Stitch them on the sewing machine, stepping back a few millimeters. Again, move the hoop to the finished edge and baste cover on semisantimetrovom distance.

We are nearing completion. Cut siptepon in the slots and slide it inside the cover and record all threads. Hiding seams, baste slits on the sides. Then you need to strengthen the cover to the frame. This can be done prostegivaya his own hands on the ready-made blueprint. After every five stitches tighten the knot. Another series of stitches are sewn at a distance of six or seven centimeters from the previous - dense fabric should be free to gather in soft folds.

Now cut a sling for four two-meter pieces, and it ends oplavte over the fire. Pass the end of the lines in the slot and fold to form a loop. Cleave needles prostrochite. This operation must be repeated for each sling. And at the end of the free ends of the sling is threaded into the prepared pre-buckle, and then - in the ceiling ring and once again in the buckle. This will help to regulate the height of the chair. The ring also will collect each of the sling in one common suspension.

That's it - the chair is ready! This is the simplest version of the chair that you can do with your hands, because here at the base, there is only one hoop.

Wicker chairs

The second option - hanging wicker chair, in which basis - two hoops that are braided cord in the art of macrame. To make a chair with your hands, you'll need two hoops of metal (35 mm pipe), a backrest hoop (110 cm), the second - for the rest (70 cm). Furthermore, it is useful polyamide cord, the thickness of which - four millimeters. It is best to purchase a cable with a special polypropylene core which, when knitting creates a very dense knots. Need and slings (twelve meters) and a pair of thick cords to fasten the ring.

If we talk about the size of hoops, they may be less than the originally specified parameters that are limiting. Cord better to buy at once in full to avoid any discrepancies in its texture or color. Everything needed for the manufacture chairs are there? Getting Started!

First of all you need to weave hoops. On the meter pipe takes an average of forty-meter cord. Lay the turns are very tight, smooth, well-pulling. Within the next twenty-turns required to attach the winding, twisting loops tight until it stops. Note that the surface of the sheath should always be smooth and strong, because it is attached to it, and mesh seat and back seat. To work better to buy a pair of gloves.

Now, we begin to weave the net on the hoop, double loop attaching it directly to the braid. In this case, a circuit weaving "checkerboard pattern", which differs flat nodes. Do not cut off the ends of angles, because of which will then need to make a fringe. The extent of the elastic mesh will depend upon how tightly when the cord was stretched. Even if the ring is deformed in a dense weave, it is then possible to compensate for the same tension nodes, respectively, to recover the shape of the hoop.

Next is bound finished rings hoops in the chair. On the one hand you need to throw in the hoops by durable coil cord special. And at the other end to insert two wooden rods of the same size. At the ends of the rods make cuts that will not slip hoops. This is what will provide the desired backrest. The length of the rod should be installed, paying attention to the height of the backrest.

Now circuits. If you decide to make a chair to give your hands, then you have to learn weaving. Well, if you do macrame, - for you it will not be difficult. Choose any pattern - on any chair will look great! Cord attach the top of the back, and the net is attached to the seat. Tighten cords better bottom on the ring. The overall design is enhanced by dense cords by which connects back and seat. By the very same chair attached slings, and then it can be placed in the garden.

The above two ways to allow easily do with his hands hanging chair original form, spending a little time and money. Now you can always spend time with a cup of tea or a book in the fresh air, and your guests will be pleasantly surprised by this unconventional piece of furniture in your garden.
