3. Take Proper Fabric Measurements
- Upper Base Measurements:
First of all, begin your craft by determining the size of the DIY footstool you would like to upholster. Remove the old upholstery fabric components from the footstool as you will need to assemble the original one. Then take the measurements to figure out how much Digital Printed Fabric you will need for your footstool covering.
First, prepare the fabric piece for the upper base (sitting area) of the Footstool. Place the printed fabric piece on the sitting area. Straighten it with straight pins keeping the perfect grasp and make sure that the upper base (sitting area) of the footstool remains smooth-edged.
Try to cut around that upper circular part of printed fabric with the help of scissors. And, cut the extra fabric to give the final touch to the upper base of the fabric.
- Circumference Measurements:
Now, once the sitting base of the footstool is ready, it's time to cover the edges of the circumference. Cover the footstool from all four sides with the help of printed fabric. Take the measurements from the sitting base to the bottom edge of the footstool (leave 4-5 inches from the bottom of the stool).
In that process you will get the all the measures of footstool including the width. Now cut the digital printed fabric using scissors with the recorded measurement.
Note: Leave 2 to 3 inches of the printed fabric ahead of the stapled edges of the actual measurement. This process will give you fabric to grip at the time of stapling.
4. Stitch the Fabric
Take both the fabric pieces - the upper base printed fabric piece and side base printed fabric piece. Draw the stitching marks with the help of chalk on both the fabrics after taking the proper measurements.
Lay both the digital printed fabrics on their back side, join them together appropriately and give it a nice circular stitch with the help of sewing machine. Keep the stitching length on the printed fabric shorter as it will make a smoother, tighter and secure seam.
5. Dress-up The Fabric on Footstool
Here comes the next step, which is to check the fitting of the footstool cover we made using digital printed fabric from Symplico.
The digital printed fabric cover is stitched properly from all the edges and now it is ready to be worn by the footstool.
Take the entire piece of stitched cover and slide it down from top to bottom of the stool (From Sitting base to the end of it). Slide down the cover and dress it up entirely from tip-to-toe. During the process, make sure that the edges of the sitting base meet the circular upper portion of the stool.
6. Staple the Fabric
Well, here comes the best part - stapling!
After wrapping the upholstery digital printed fabric up and over the footstool, line up the center of the fabric means the upper base appropriately.
Also, Flip your stool upside down; pull the fabric circumference as tightly as possible before securing it with the help of staple gun.
Start stapling the digital printed fabric all the way around to the Footstool with the plenty of staples while gripping the fabric firm and fasten.
7. Give the Perfect Finishing
After the stapling process completion, it’s time to proffer the perfect finishing to your chic footstool.
All you need to evaluate is the tightness of the Digital Printed Fabric around the Footstool to make sure if it covers up all the fresh corners of the upholstery fabric. While doing that, trim off the excess fabric or strings from the downside of the footstool.
Well, turn the footstool right side up, enjoy and feel the fresh vibes of your brand new Footstool with the elegant crisp of the digitally printed fabric.
