These chairs are so nice for outside! The fold for easy storage and the covers are washable! I have tested the chairs up to about 45 pounds in weight.
I have about $10.00 invested in each chair and I sell them for $20. I have been making them for about 2 years now and they sell fairly well. Nice to use camping or any outdoor activity. The are so lightweight, that even the girls can carry their own!
Chair Cover Supplies:
13"x26" fabric for front
13"x26" fabric for back
13"x26" fleece interfacing
1. Layer the pieces together, wrong sides facing. Sew around all edges, leaving a space for turning.
2. Turn right side out. Fold 2 1/2" to the back on each end and pin in place. Sew.
Chair Frame Supplies:
About 15' of 1" outer diameter PVC pipe
8- 1" PVC elbows
6- 1" PVC T's

1. Using the drywall sanding block, sand any marking off the PVC pipe.
2. Using a miter saw, cut the pipe into the following pieces:
4- 3 3/4", 6- 6 3/4", 4- 12", 3-14"
3. Start by making the bottom frame.Take 1-12" piece and attach elbows to both ends. Attach a 3 3/4" piece to one elbow and a 6 3/4" to the other elbow. Attach a T to both pieces you just placed with the "stem" of the T facing inward. Repeat with another 12". Now join the two frame pieces together using a 14" inserted into the "stem" of the T.
4.To make the back frame: Insert a 6 3/4" piece into the T on each side and top each piece with another T with the "stem" facing towards you. Insert a 6 3/4 piece on the top part of the T on both sides. Top each piece with an elbow. Join the back frame with a 14" piece.
5. Insert a 3 3/4" piece into the T on the front of the chair and top with an elbow. Repeat for other side. Insert a 12" from the elbow to the T on the back. Repeat for other side. Insert your last 14" piece to complete the chair frame.
6. Make sure all of the joints have been pushed together really well.
