Sofa Slipcover Progress

With the pattern I made from the first cushion in hand, it was a fairly straight-forward process to assemble the cover for my living room sofa's second seat cushion.

Dorothy approves.

Next step, fitting and figuring out how to do the arms of this thing.  I hope to work on this on Sunday, while the temperature outside is frigid and some predicted frozen precipitation is falling from the sky .. that is, if the storm doesn't knock out our power.  (I am hoping that the Weather Gods keep the ice accumulation to a minimum for us ... or skip it all together.)

Stay warm, Everyone!


  1. It's looking great! Fingers crossed you keep power!!!

  2. I am in awe! I wouldn't know where to start.

  3. The cushions look great! Can't wait to see how it all turns out. I wish I could sew like you!

  4. Great job! I think the cushions are the hardest part and you were smart by tackling those first. I always put them off for last.

  5. The cushions look really comfy and if the weathermen are right, you're going to have a lot of time on Sunday to work on this!

  6. Dorothy is a cutie! Good luck weathering the storm.

  7. Hey my friend,
    Go to the search button on my blog...I think I have some pics and instructions on fitting the body of the sofa/chair. Let me know if I can help via phone or internet...have fun!

  8. Cats just think it's all about them, don't they?!
    Covers are looking great!

  9. Just fabulous! Lol my poor mother has been non-stop slip covering for the better part of the last decade. The holy grail was slip covering the la-z-boy. That took an incredible amount of time to get the working parts just right. I'm amazed by people like you and my mom who can so patiently chip away at these huge, tedious projects. Your arsenal of skills is so impressive! Those cushions are just perfect!

  10. It is going to be great. I admire your work.

    I am starting a tour of our holiday home. I hope you will come by to visit.

  11. Kudos to you for taking on such a big project! My sewing skills are minimal--I don't think I could tackle something like this. Dorothy looks like she's on top of things. :-)
