Still Slipcovering!

Thursday, January 19, 2012

For those of you who have been following the slipcover saga, here's an update:

It's slow going & still kicking my butt!

Here's some pictures to show just how inept I am at sewing.
   Our sofa cushions are sewn into the back.  I played and fiddled around with the drop cloth but couldn't get it how I liked and figured the best thing to do was to start taking the cushions off so I could just slipcover them individually.  I probably would not be this brave if the sofa was in good shape, this one was not.
 That wasn't so bad - here is how it looked once I got it off.
 Don't ask me why these cushion's were so darn hard to cover, but literally took me several hours!  Maybe it had something to do with Marley wanting to play instead of let me sew!
 So you can see I am making progress!  I sew a little, go paint a little, do a load of laundry, cook dinner, take new furniture makeovers to the Depot, spend some quality time with the family & fit my full time job in there somewhereI do love to have me some projects in the works but I need to finish these before I start anymore for sure!


  1. It will get there! Don't give up. And I can't wait to see it!

  2. OH, I am so glad you cut off the back cushions...I think it will make all of the difference in the world once you're done with the slipcover project. Don't stress too much...this is a project for your own self...we can all wait patiently for the end result blog entry! Love you!


I love getting comments, they make my day and I read each one! So, thank you very much for taking the time to leave one!
