I made a slipcover. ...

I'm pretty excited to share this post with you wonderful folks, you may remember awhile ago I mentioned that I was helping My lovely friend GG redo her living room, it's still not ready  for a room reveal, but as part of this transformation,  we needed to make slipcovers for her sofa, and chair, neither of us have ever done one sooo.. we did our homework and asked around,  then dove in . Please keep in mind that this slipcover is far from perfect, but you kinda learn as you go. We did get some great advice from Lynn @The shabby story who had just done her first slipcover and who also told me about a six part series on slipcovers by miss mustard seed, this was a amazing help. So thank you Lynn.. Xo.....We started with the chair, we figured we'll make our mistakes here-before we move on to the couch-this was the right choice as it turned out, we know now to make it a little bigger and adjust later...I'm pretty happy with the whole project as I'm not a big sewer, but I'm getting better one project at a time.

The seam  is a little out of place  little out of place, but it's just the way it's being pulled..
 A few puckers, but not bad for a first try.
 A pretty throw, and a little embroidered pillow.


Till next time.......Xo Elle
