A friend of mine asked me to make a slipcover for her daughters small couch.  I talked her into also covering a rarely used ottoman from their family room.  This is the first time I have done anything on furniture.  I was thrilled with how the ottoman turned out.  I would have liked for the couch to be a little more fitted, but it is a sleeper (very heavy) so they didn't want to move it to my house for me to work on it there.  They are thrilled with it.  I made pink piping for the monogrammed pillow & added it on the ottoman too, I thought it needed something to tie it in to the rest of the furniture. It still needs a little ironing, but you can get the idea.

Wow, that's amazing!  It looks like hard candy, chocolate, cupcakes and ice cream.   Yes, I'm on a diet.  It all looks so delicious. Great job!

Holy Crap! I love it! It looks like something you'd see on trading spaces (my fav show). Few questions:
1. Was it hard?
2. Did you use a pattern?
3. What kind of fabric is that pink stuff? Hopefully wrinkle free.
3. How long did it take you?
4. Would you do it again/recommend it?

I LOVE IT!!! I'm so jealous! Thanks for the inspiration!!!

Can make dresses for your princess!

That's a fantastic slipcover job. I was even more impressed when I scrolled down and saw the starting point. You totally transformed it, and it looks professionally done! The piping was definitely a good choice for that 'finished' look. What a lucky girl... she could never get such good looking covers from a store.

This is great! I Love the colors you chose. I also wonder if you used a pattern...I would like to make a slipcover for my sister's couch.
Those who say it can't be done shouldn't interrupt the person doing it.
