Ottoman Slipcover Copies
Liz, from Boston, sent me her old ottoman slipcover to be copied …twice! I made one in a colorful print (Kaffe Fassett Flame Stripe) and another in a classic natural denim.
Like most well-used slipcovers, Liz’s cover was shrunk-up in areas and a little misshapen due to years of wash and wear. But It was still usable as a pattern template. I was able to make a couple of adjustments to ensure the slipcover copies fit like new.
The 12 oz. natural denim Liz chose for one of her slipcovers is thick and weighty. No lining needed.
That wasn’t the case for the Flame Stripe slipcover. The fabric is a home decor cotton sateen, heavier than quilter’s cloth but still a lightweight compared to denim. I gave it a full lining for better drape and wear.
Having a couple of slipcover options for a coffee table style ottoman is not a bad idea. They come in handy for a quick decor change whenever the mood strikes.
