Step 1: Go get stuff.
- 9 yards of 62" wide canvas
- 6 yards of 60" wide material of choice for cover background (something soft, something cheap)
- 2 yards of 60" wide material for cover pattern
- a spool of thread (to match cover pattern fabric)
- 1 pair of swimmies or inflatable raft (available at Target)
- 1 gallon liquid latex ( Clear #10)
- 1 container of baby powder
- 1 container of rubbing alcohol
- a bar of Dove soap or similar ( bacon soap is tempting but not recommended)

- 2 latex gloves
- 1 pad of tracing paper
- 1 sewing machine
- 2 boxes of sewing machine needles (for denim)
- 1 box of beaded pins

- 1 tape measure
- 1 pair of scissors
- 1 roll of masking tape
- 1 computer with Photoshop (or similar)
- 1 black and white printer
- 2 one and half inch paintbrushes
- 3 plastic containers (1 sealable and 1 capable of holding a bar of soap)
- 1 sewing needle
- 1 roll of paper towels
- 1 outfit you don't like (for painting latex)
Step 2: Create the cover.
On account of its importance and realizing that this is the most time intensive part of the process I made the cover first, even though it is the last thing you will actually need when finally assembling the chair.
For detailed instructions on how to make the cover see the Digital Image to Personalized Fabric Cover instructable.
