I was getting impatient after getting sniped over and over on Ebay, trying to win a futon cover pattern.  I found a print I loved from Joann's home fabric section during one of the 50% sales.  I think it was Liz Claiborn but I'm not sure.  I bought what I was sure would be more than enough and laid it over the futon mattres, tucking and pinning until I made a kind of fitted sheet.  The plan is to eventually sew it to the existing cover (it's about 12 years old I think, many holes and worn spots!) but for now I have it attatched with about a zillion giant army safety pins!  I just didn't let the potty learning three yearold on the couch for a while!

I only have links since I'm so fresh Smiley

Thanks!  It really did change the room, the colors tie the pictures in more than the red cover did.  Now everything I do in that room revolves around the palette of the futon!
