More fun with ticking!

Another beautiful slipcover done in a traditional ticking fabric. I love the look of one long sofa cushion. It is calling me to snuggle up. With the customers permission I ended up cutting the original back cushions and pillow covers off. It looked much softer after they were removed. I love it so much that I want to make a slipcover in this same fabric for my own sofa.

Many cute slipcovers are featured including my settee slipcover done in ticking over on the Pink and Polka Dot Blog.

Having fun with Ticking!

My customer found this great settee at a house sale in her neighborhood for a steal. I had a lot of fun making this slipcover. The fabric had a nice stretch to it and was a dream to work with. The fabric had a nice weight to it and did not have to be lined.

Here is a before picture.

Wow! What a difference with the new slipcover! I love the little knife pleats.

The arm was a little tricky to work with but I liked the challenge.

Stay tuned for more fun with ticking. The next slipcover I am working on will be done in another ticking fabric in almost the same colors.
