Repair to sling back patio furniture

We bought 4 sling type patio chairs a few years back. They are chair rail height, and swivel. Love them, but the sling fabric has now started busting, and can no longer use the chairs. I want to repair them, but they want $50 each for new replacement slings. Ok, DIY's give me ideas as to how I can fix them myself. The frames are very heavy duty metal. I was thinking of wrapping area with duct tape, then making a canvas cover to go over that. Problem is possible duct tape getting sticky in the summer (of course fabric would help in that area). Any other suggestions?

Sorry, I mistakenly posted to furniture area, so moved here.

I'm not sure if this would work or not, but maybe you could use some of that rubber baseboard material. I'm thinking it comes on a roll, so you could cut it to length. Just a thought!

Possibly the foam used to insulate around water pipes???
