Summer Living with Indigo Denim Slipcovers

Classic Indigo Denim Love Seat Slipcover

Heavy weight indigo denim makes the best slipcovers for the cottage. It’s one of those fabrics you just don’t have to fuss over.

A couple of years ago I used 14 oz. yarn dyed indigo denim to make these sofa and love seat slipcovers for Ellen’s cute lakeside cottage in Clarklake, MI. I recently visited her there and was impressed at how well the fabric has held up to daily life on the lake.

These family-friendly denim slipcovers are tough and washable. Bring on the damp bathing suits and sandy feet!

 

 

Indigo Denim Slipcover Ready for the Cottage

chair-detached-cushionAre you thinking of updating an old chair for a new space?

My customer did just that with indigo denim slipcovers for her Lake Michigan cottage.

I used a 14 oz. yarn-dyed washed denim. This durable cotton cloth is family and pet friendly and offers smooth coverage over textured upholstery.  Great for everyday slipcovers.

To give this slipcover the best fit and function possible I inserted a placket zipper in the back for easy on and off. I also detached the back cushion, added new poly cluster fill and made a removable cover.
