Date Night

Friday, July 18, 2014

I've got a date with my not-so-white-anymore couch tonight. I'm prepping yards and yards of natural colored canvas so that I can get started on that slipcover I mentioned. The canvas is more off white/almond colored than I had hoped but it will do for now, especially since I don't really know what I'm doing! Ha!

I often dive into projects without really knowing what I am doing but I'm usually pretty confident going in because I tend to research things to death. I plan on making a basic slip cover with a box pleat skirt. The cushions will be individually slip-covered as well. I am forgoing the piping because I don't feel like making it and because I'm not 100% in love with the color of the fabric.

How about you, do you have any weekend sewing plans?

I am anxious to follow along with your project.

Looking forward to seeing your progress, and wishing you well with it! I watched Miss Mustard Seed's slipcover videos and decided to try it. Got as far as buying the drop cloths and no further.

The last couple of times I did slipcovers, I too omitted the piping. After all, the piping is what wears out first, and once I've made a slip cover, I don't want to have to remake it a few years down the road.
