SLIPCOVERS: Before and After with a Supply List

I am so excited to have a slipcover made for my couch! I have been putting it off like a few other projects. WHY? Because I was afraid to mess it up! Let me tell you .... You are NEVER going to learn to swim by dipping your toe in the water. 

So last week I decided to just jump in and give it a try. I am giddy with the outcome. It's not PERFECT by any means but I like it much better than before. 

I had fun with this and learned some new things. I have a list of supplies you need to do this as well as a few tips I will be sharing later.
Here are the before and after pictures! Did I tell you I'm so glad to have it checked off my list of 'To-Dos' 


...... and AFTER!

This is what was on my supply list:

      • 10 oz weight cotton canvas ( used about 7 yards)
      •  Dual Duty Heavy Thread ( used one plus some of the other spool)
      • Fabric Scissors
      • Sewing machine .. of course!
      • Zipper Foot 
      • Denim Needle
      • Pins
      • Cording
      • Measure Tape
      • Iron (optional)

Now time for you to jump in!!
