90% DIY Slipcover

>> Tuesday, February 8, 2011

I really should wait to post these until I find time for the outstanding 10% (hemming the bottom and ironing). But I am having a super busy week, so who knows when that will happen....and this is some serious exciting crafting for me.

Here is was at 20%. And now 90%.
taaa-daaa!
Mr. Sabbe said it looked claaaaassy.
I will admit, there were no tears, but this project had some major moments of frustration. We'll see how #2 goes and then I will give you some proper pictures and tips.

It looks so great! Now I'm sure you are aware of why ppl charge so much to make slipcovers!

Stephanie Sabbe February 8, 2011 at 6:23 PM  

So true Brooke. hourly, I would have had to charge $400 to make worth it, not including materials.

Wow. So impressed. Seriously, I'm counting on those how-to pictures and instructions, ok? Cause I have two wing chairs sitting in my basement just waiting for some attention.

I'm so proud of you... even though I don't really know you. :)

I am so impressed with your skills. I am embarrassed for you to look at my 'no sew' post today! Puttin' everyone else to shame!

Stephanie Sabbe February 9, 2011 at 4:50 PM  

there is no shame in a no sew project!
