    I did exactly as you said in this post, but I still can't get this to my bookmarked items. I have not been able to bookmarl anything since the new layout. I would really appreciate any help that I can get. I really did do exactly as you wrote, but it dies not show up in my bookmarked items that I had saved before the format change.

    I might even add some pockets on the arms to hold the remotes and my sewing stuff!

    Thank you - you're very clever and talented - and generous to share your idea, too.
    Polly parrot,
    If you add pockets for remotes etc. make sure the side they are not in is well anchored. I made some and put pockets both sides to try and level weight. Why not put a pincushion on top as well for pins when sewing so you don't ruin the leather.

    Thank you for the great tutorial. I have 2 microfiber recliners that are very light in color.I think these covers would make them look great!

    Thank you sooo very much for this.

    Thank you so much. I have a friend wanting me to make a cover for his truck seat. This will help me get started.

    Not a pattern, but I have a friend who has these on her recliners for visiting granddogs. I've also seen them on sale for under $20 each.

    Thank you so much for the PDF version.

    I had saved your picture of the recliner a few years back knowing that I need to make one. (I have 6 grandchildren- (all under 5-1/2 yr) with 2-- more coming in a few weeks) Even though I have a house rule "all eating is at the table" somehow the little munchkins manage to get a drink (bottle or something) on the recliner.

    For the last 2 das I have been looking for the web sit I saw it--thinking you would have instructions. I tried this site, but didn't find anything as a topic recliner cover. So this morning I was dead set In finding it.

    Thank you so much.
