Beach Chic Leather Folding Chair - Woven Leather v2

This will likely be my last chair post, but I wanted to add this variation since it is slightly different than the first (see, Woven Leather Chair) and has a summer spin! I purchased this aluminum Telescope folding chair on Ebay for $44 and re-covered it in leather for an additional $100. I purchased the natural strap leather (4 oz / 5 oz) from Weaver and had them cut 2" strips.

 First step is to disassemble the chair by unscrewing the canvas strips. Discard all but one from each direction to use as a template.

 We found it was easier to cut the strips down the middle and just turn the strip, vs. using the screwdriver.
