GOING AWAY SLIPCOVERS



This is a partial post of the slipcovers I am doing for Kim before she leaves for Georgia next Monday.




This little ottoman is mostly used by Paws (her 14 year old lab) to get on and off the sofa. I cut the top piece and she had it printed with the fleur de lis. Then I made the slipcover.
This ottoman is at the foot of her bed and serves the same purpose. After I made this one, Kim decided she'd rather have a gathered skirt, so I took this tailored skirt off, took it partially apart, added the extra fabric and lining, and gathered it. I just forgot to take a picture of the new one.

This small chaise got two new covers. The skirt on this (not visible) is tailored and short.

This is the other fabric (with the gathered, to the floor skirt) and you can see the size better with Scout on it. This is her chaise.

The #3 is for Kim's 3 'kids,' Paws, Scout and the newly adopted Kenyon.

This slipcover is the first time I have ever made a skirt and not lined it. Instead of the 'normal' 2 1/2 times fullness for the skirt, it is just 1 1/2 times full, which is also a first. I was actually pleasantly surprised and pleased with the result.
The back side of the chair. I think Kim has decided to paint the legs black.

The rest of the photos will have to come later, as the other 2 slipcovers are not finished yet. Kim is having the inside back of the light blue linen one printed with an image (yet to be determined) and then, at the last minute added another for the same chaise (a larger, people-sized one) and I have basically run out of time as I have another job that must be finished by Thanksgiving. Those will have to be mailed to her in Georgia.
