Chair and Ottoman Slips Completed

Two finished projects this week for our family room! I added the hem and ruffle to the white denim chair slipcover and today I made a slipcover for the ottoman out of muslin. The muslin is the same colour as the drop cloth pillows. Total cost: ZERO $
I love the casual pleat on the ottoman cover and the looser tuck on the hem of the chair slipcover.
The chair slipcover is not perfect but I love it (and it covers a rip!) I won a $40 gift card from a local fabric store and bought 4 metres of white denim for $10/metre. My friend gave me several yards of the muslin.

It is difficult to photograph our family room in the daytime because of all the sun from the skylights. There are lots of whites and off whites in our home, but I have lots of black and wood too. And shades of blue. I love blue! (Blue striped pillows are on the floor in this photo. Isn't that where pillows are supposed to go?!!)
Dark brown ottoman before:
Just a hint of the legs (same as the pair of chairs.) I need to get the wrinkles out and vacuum the fabric bits!
It's the long weekend here (hard to believe half my summer holiday is over!) We just got back from camping and are staying home this weekend, so hopefully I can accomplish a bit more.

  2. Your slipcovers are wonderful. I love the whole room. I have a few slipcovers to get made and hopefully soon. I had better get off this computer and get something done now so I can sew later. Thanks for sharing your work, the pleats add just the right touch.

  10. What an amazing job you did on the slipcovers. I want to slipcover my sofa and loveseat....oh how I wish you lived closer :) I know I won't be able to do the slipcovers myself...so I will be hiring someone to do them. Your house is lovely.
