Slipcovers




Jenny's been home sick for two days now, so I've been up in the house. I decided to work on a slipcover for my big chair and ottoman in my bedroom. Earlier this year, I'd purchased a very large cotton duck painter's drop cloth at Home Depot for $18. I washed and dried the fabric and have just been waiting for the right moment to work it into a sturdy slipcover--I'm not finished yet--still have to do the back and box pleat skirt--but I'm done with the footstool. I also made another slipcover for a beat-up little footstool that's been floating around the house. Hopefully I'll finish all the slipcovers tonight, Jenny will be well, and tomorrow I'll be back out in the studio!

Wow, you are one talented lady! That is so cool....I gotta try that.
I love the idea of using the painter's cloth. I've used them for client's shower curtains, I paint them with designs, etc., to match the bath.
I love A BIG project, it gets me moving!

That's one of my big projects that I haven't started yet. I hope to make a slip cover for my favourite comfy chair. At least the sewing machine is set up, so I'm getting closer. Right?
