Ottoman Slipcover

Slipcovered Ottoman

So today I did a quick easy project and thought I would share it with you.  A couple of weekends ago I picked up several pieces of furniture to re-upholster and slipcover.  One of them was this ottoman, and the client has a stash of fabric so as we were loading a loveseat to re-upholster and a wingback chair to slipcover, she said, why don’t we just add this one too!  So I said ok!  Today  I was waiting for a delivery to come before I could finish up another project, so I decided to work on the ottoman, knowing it wouldn’t take to long.

I decided on a simple style and started with just laying the fabric over it and working on the corners.  The client did not want a skirt, and I also needed a way to hold it on.

I pinned in the corner pleats and then basted them.  Next I made string ties and turned up the length.  Then it was just hemming and sewing in the ties.  I decided to add buttons at each pleat, just to add a finishing touch.

I think it turned out rather nice, just a simple cover, that doesn’t take away from the beautiful legs!

I am still waiting on my delivery, but hopefully it will be here soon.  UPS is famous for delivery late here!

Thanks for stopping by!
