This is my second (and probably not final) post about a project I finally
finished. I wanted to share it again in case anyone missed it. I’ve seen people make drop cloth curtains, which I really liked. It got me thinking about using a drop cloth as a frugal, beachy type of sofa cover.
I knew I might be a little over my head on this one but, I totally took my time and referred to several other blogs on the subject of making your own slip covers. I didn’t use any one particular tutorial, they were all basically the same.
My couch is “L” shaped and 18′ long! So there just aren’t any pre-made covers available that would fit it, or I would have gladly invested in them. If you think that a few of these pictures are confusing, just picture me trying to figure out what I was doing without a pattern!
I pre-washed the canvas then, tuck, cut, pin, cross your fingers!
We bought this couch before we had kids and four cats so, my household is now too busy to live with out a couch cover. I found it too challenging to keep my off white couch clean. But the couch has good “bones” so I didn’t want to get rid of it.
By some miracle, the humongous slip cover turned out pretty well, I think. I’m really glad now that I didn’t spend a lot of money on a new couch or expensive pre-made slip covers. Sometimes it pays off to try something new.
