SLIPCOVER FOR A TELEVISION!!!

 Just when I think I've slipcovered everything it is possible to slipcover, along comes something new.  
 This outdoor television is already pretty protected from the elements, but my client wanted to keep the  dust and moisture (that pesky marine layer) away.
Cutting it was rather a pain since, just as with anything that isn't covered with fabric already, there is nothing for the fabric to hold onto.  I have to tape the fabric in place until I can get another piece pinned to it.  This was even more challenging than it might have been because the Sunbrella was particularly stiff and had to be sewn on my industrial machine.  In the end, it worked out and it was just what my client wanted.

Cool! My Parents have a TV like this at their home in Palm Springs and they would love something simple and chic to cover it for when they are not there for months at a time. Dust and sand are abundant. Much better than what they have now. I love THIS!

Hi Tamerie, wow, I have never heard of a slipcover for a tv before! That's great! And I love the chair in your previous post... I always used to think of slipcovers as really loose, flowing "throws"... you have shown me just how beautiful they are! Wishing you a glorious sunshiny weekend! xoxo Julie Marie

Perfect Girl! It looks so well made and all that work taping paid off for sure.
I use the blue painters tape on almost all hard surfaces when making my slips, and I totally get what a pain it is.

KEEP ON TRUCKIN' or wait,
KEEP ON SLIPPIN'
