Slipcovering A Sectional! Gold Gold Gold

Hey you guys!  It's been a while since my last post, so I thought I'd give you a quick update.  First off Calico Corner's had a huge fabric sale!! So... I've gone a little fabric crazy, and am  pretty much sewing slipcovers for everything I own.  Here's a sneak peek of my sectional in progress.


I found a bolt of gold mohair fabric for only $4 a yard!  It's a tone on tone graphic print... and I thought it could look cool paired with lots of more traditional fabrics.  I also got some gold and platinum velvet fabric, LOVE velvet anything, and lots of other fabrics too, all to be shared soon!!  Oh and FUCHSIA too!


I still have lots of pillows to cover and the corner piece to slipcover, but.... almost there!


Slipcovering a sofa like this is actually a lot easier than you might think!!  One of these days when I get it all done I'll get a how to posted and you'll see what I mean. : )

So what do you think so far?

  1. I think it looks great and a how to would be wonderful. a friend of mine who is starting all over and is now a single mom bought a sofa just like that on craigslist for cheap and I was telling her about making slips with drop cloths..
    unfortunately I have no clue how to make slips so I'll be watching for your tutorial.

  4. It's beautiful! WOW!
    I made slipcovers out of cotton duck years ago and loved the end result. My taste has changed now to more glamorous elements. What you picked is wonderful! Can't wait to see finished.
    Thank you for sharing.

  6. Please help me! Just married the love of my life, and I've inherited his not so lovely sectional (the Gregory from Rooms To Go). I thumbed through the internet, and the sectional in this blog is the only one that actually looks like his, ahem, our sofa. I'm definitely inspired! I own a sewing machine (since 1998) and only used it to make a few school projects. But I think I can re-learn how to use it. Can a novice really do this? Looking forward to your how-to!
