My friend was making something and went to get some Pink Leopard Print (just like that) from Wal-mart and when she saw that it was gone and she had to settle for the purple she was really sad. She was also sad about the price of that stuff.

Great job!  I'm curious, have you done this sort of thing before?  Could you give a little tutorial, or guidelines?  I tried to cover an ugly couch before . . . endedup using fabric glue and nails . . . it didn't turn out so good Huh

I actually hadn't the slightest idea of what I was doing when I made this!  I used basic concepts that I learned in my Draping classes at school (draping for fashion design, basically the "art" of patternmaking by draping musin on dressforms).  I took the leopard fabric, eyeballed the grainline, and draped it in seperate pieces.  The main body was one piece, one piece for either side, and one piece for the front bottom part.  I did the sides first, then the front and main body last.  I folded under all "seams' and stapeled em down.  You CAN see the staples, but they really aren't that noticeable because the fabric has some fuzz to it, but if you were worried you could easily paint the staples to match.  As far as the cushions go, I just made pillowcases using their measurements and handstitched the open ends.  I'll see if I can figure out a way to make a tutorial.  I hope this helps some!  Thanks for all the compliments.
