Chaise Slipcover for Foxy

  Chris Roblin of Chris Roblin Design contacted me to make this slipcover for her clients dog "Foxy". Foxy is a cute silver lab that loves to sleep in a chaise in her master's bedroom.  I knew the customer wanted to wash the slipcover often so I offered to make a pet cover for the cushion for easy removal for washing.  The pet cover is much easier to remove and replace than the large chaise seat cushion cover.  The fabric used is a beautiful 100% acrylic blue ticking stripe.

Here is a look at the underneath of the cushion which shows how the pet cover is constructed.  The cushion is placed inside the front nose of the pet cover and then an elastic strap holds the back of the pet cover in place.  Just slide the elastic over the cushion and slide the cushion out.  So nice and easy for frequent washings.

Here is a closeup of how the pet cover looks on the cushion.
Foxy loves toys so I made her a bone toy to match her new slipcover.
