upholstering: old folding chairs

Eric and I (finally) reupholstered a pair of folding chairs from the mid-1930s.  We've been moving these chairs around from apartment to apartment and finally to this house for years, always with the intention of reupholstering the beige plastic seats. 

The chairs sport a particularly interesting folding structure, with the back section of the chair remaining still while the seat folds up and the front legs fold in, rather than the whole thing scissoring to the flat position.
