    just for ease of use, and so I don't have to worry about zippers breaking or rusting outside. I have two antique chairs in the living room I'm going to have to break down and make new covers for eventually. The dogs have put pullies in these, and they're also looking grungy no matter how often I wash them. I just haven't gotten the right material for it yet. I'm considering something sturdy like canvas or denim. And something that isn't going to show ever speck of dog hair as well too.

      a great idea. Or...yesterday a friend of mine suggested using a painter's drop cloth to cover the patio cushions. $10 for a huge one, and you can dye it any color with Rit.

      Actually sounds like a very good idea. Maybe it would work for your chairs, too?

        I'll have to take the covers that it has apart and use them for a pattern, because the back seat cushions are an odd wedge shape I don't know if I can imitate without that. It will be an interesting project. Though a painter's drop may be cheaper than canvas or denim. I'd have to make sure the die won't rub off though, because I'd need dark colors with black dogs LOL.
