I immediately set to action. I grabbed some jacquard fabric I happened to have on hand.
Fabric - enough to cover the bench and and extra to fold a couple of inches around the bottom.
*Tip: How To Get A Straight Edge on Jacquard (and other fabrics).
This works for any fabric that you cannot simply snip and rip to get a straight edge. Use on jacquards, linens, brocades and any delicate fabrics that might stretch out and warp if torn.
Step One - snip in the direction you want to create the straight edge.
Step Two - find a loose thread or two inside the snipped area.
Step Three - pull the thread gently. As it comes loose, it'll leave a beautiful straight line across the width of the fabric.
Step Four - cut along the line.
