I bought this fabric about 4 years ago, the same time I bought the toile fabric I used to back my bookcases and mistreat my windows. About 2 years later, my girlfriend Amy came over and we cut the pieces to make an ottoman slipcover. And now, another 2 years later, I finally finished the project.
This is not going to win any awards, but I finished it! And, it's my first attempt at a slipcover. And I wanted to succeed, so I kept it SIMPLE. Trust me, I wanted to make it fancy, with piping or a box pleat. But I wanted to finish it (without using a seam ripper or pins or an iron.) I have decided I am the world's laziest sew-er.
If you really want to appreciate how much better it looks now, here is a before photo:
Even Noah, Grandad and Chloe can't make a stained, sun bleached, peach ottoman look good. The matching chair is in Noah's room with a store bought slipcover.
There is something to be said for buying quality furniture in a classic style. It is down filled and other than the color it hasn't gone out of style. My mom had this chair in her house AT LEAST 18 years ago. (that is as far back as my memory will go right now)
