MORE VELVET

 As if the velvet, or make that, the challenging velvet slipcover I posted about last time wasn't enough, I am currently doing another.  This velvet is just the same - a big, fat pain to work with.  I had not done a velvet slipcover in forever, but that seems to be the way it goes.  Sometimes all I do is white denim or white linen.  Now, apparently, it's velvet.  Anyone else want to drive me a little crazy?  Just choose a velvet and ask me to do a slipcover!



 It looks relatively harmless cut on the loveseat, doesn't it?  Well, let me tell you, in case you did not already know, looks CAN be deceiving!  Because it is such a pain, the actual construction is taking me far longer than it should.  I'll post a picture of the finished slipcover just as soon as I get it done and delivered. 

Just a reminder:  There is still time to enter my Vintage Christmas Stocking Giveaway.  I'll be drawing 2 names on Friday at some point.  That gives you plenty of time to leave a comment to be included. If you don't want or need the stockings yourself, they would make a great gift.

Sorry about the run of velvet! Hope I don't see any soon. The worst fabric I've encountered so far was a stretchy chenille. What a pain! I hated the finished slipcover; but client loved it. Guess that is all that counts.
