Quilted Cushion Covers for Vintage Settee

Vintage Settee Before SlipcoverThis vintage settee makeover was inspired by the rich textured look of Matelasse fabric. Instead of spending a fortune on the real stuff my customer found quilted king and twin size coverlets for a steal.  They worked great for her custom covers.

Quilted Cushion Covers for Vintage SetteePadded and quilted, that’s exactly what we needed to cover the worn upholstery and random lumps from old springs.  I also attached a cushy layer of batting for extra loft and comfort.  And, of course, there is the animal print piping!  Cushion Slipcovers Made from Quilted Coverlets

Natural Duck Slipcovers for the Patio

Canvas Chair Cushion Slipcovers

Patio chair slipcovers in #12 weight natural duck cloth.

My friends, Dave and Linda, sent me this photo of the canvas slipcovers I recently made for their poolside patio chairs.  Poolside in December?  Obviously they don’t live here in cold, snowy Michigan!

Once in awhile I make slipcovers for customers outside of my area.  I don’t do it often because the pattern method I use requires me to have access to the furniture.  But since the cushions were a simple rectangle box style and Dave was able to take accurate measurements from his existing covers I could easily do the project long distance.

I used #12 cotton duck/canvas in color Natural.

Although this fabric does not have a water, mold, stain or fade resistant coating, it’s still a good choice for outdoor use.  That is if you live in warm, dry Phoenix like Dave and Linda.  Lucky them 🙂  The thick #12 weight is woven super dense and is made with 2-ply yarns.  It naturally resists a certain amount of moisture and will hold up well to the elements for a long while with proper care.
