The question I am most asked is "where do you get your slipcovers?" My answer has always been "I make them".......but that is not entirely true. I'm going to share my secret with you today!
I "tacked" a pretty crochet piece to this one.
( I love my new white enamel clock that I bought at Hobby Lobby in the 75% off isle.)
The rose garden in the back yard is just full of roses, I cut bouquets for every room in the house....lol!
I "tacked" another crocheted piece to the matching fall pillow.
I wasn't tired of the cow picture that I took down to put up Easter decor, so I just hung it back up when I took the Easter stuff down.
The foundation of my custom slip cover is a plain simple one that I bought premade a long long time ago.
I take my cushions and wrap them up just like I would a Christmas package. When you sit on the sofa cushion, everything stays in place just like a sofa without a slip cover.
Safety pin a pretty dust ruffle to the premade slip cover to give your sofa a custom look.
You can make your sofa a one of a kind by using different fabric on the cushion and changing the dust ruffle.
I like different textures, so I mix up the fabrics that I use on the sofa and love seat.
I have one more tip to share. Most of the fabrics I use to customize my sofa and love seat come from yard sales!
The pretty Chenille spread I used on the sofa was only $5 at a yard sale......that's a lot of fabric for not much money!
If one of the cushions gets soiled, I just unpin it and throw it in the washer
On the love seat, I have covered the back of the premade slip cover with a piece of Matelasse and covered the cushions with some pretty Battenburg lace fabric.
I have a Patriotic theme started in the family room for summer. I hung a star in the dining room and have the fireplace mantel done, just a few more details and I will be done with the family room for a few months.
I always enjoy your visits so much, please come back soon!
