Hand-Me-Down Chaise

This slipcover is a birthday present for a 13 year old. The down cushion chaise was originally the grandmother's then was handed down to a daughter and now to the granddaughter. Each generation had a new slipcover made and you can see some of the different fabrics used in the before pictures. The new slipcover was done in a matelasse diamond fabric and we used some of the grandmother's fabric to make a pillow cover.  A beautiful family heirloom ready for the next generation!


 The down cushion is so luxurious! 


 She has the option to flip the pillow over to a matching fabric.

Topstitching detail on Modern Style Sofa

This slipcover is for a new Arhaus Remington sofa 108" long.  This is a very large sofa.  Each cushion is 4 ft wide by 3 ft deep. The customer wants to protect the Belgium linen upholstery while her children are small. She chose to copy the upholstery and had me topstitch the seams.  The fabric is a linen/cotton blend and a very close match to the Belgium linen. The topstitch detail and waterfall skirt are perfect for the modern look of the sofa.

Butter Pat Pleats and Corset Lacing

I slipcovered all the furniture in the living room except one chair for this customer.  I love the details she chose.  She wanted the butter pat pleats on the sofa, chair and ottoman then she wanted the two matching side chairs to have contrasting cording and a corset lacing detail on back. Fun, fun, fun!

 The living room with all slipcovers.

 She also ordered the pet covers for the sofa and the exposed wood chair. Here is a picture of the pet cover over the seat cushions of the sofa. I am pretty sure the pet cover was on the exposed wood chair in all the pictures above.

 I am lifting the chair cushion to show you how the pet cover is attached.
and this is me holding up the sofa pet cover

I am excited to share my new care labels I purchased from Dutch Label Shop.  All my slipcovers will have these care labels attached. I will be talking more about the care labels in the future.

Sleeper Sofa Slipcover

My customer had a sleeper sofa that was upholstered to look like a slipcover but now she wanted a washable slipcover.  She chose a great solid cotton fabric for her new slipcovers. The sofa will be able to convert to a bed without removing the slipcover.
