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!
Are 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.
Sherri at August Blues Slipcover Studio made this gorgeous slip for her own wingback chair. I love the indigo floral print. That inky shade of blue draws me in as do so many other shades of blue.
Sherri’s slipcover sparked a search for more inspirational slipcovers in blue. Whether it’s denim, canvas, linen, chenille or a print you can’t go wrong with a beautiful blue slipcover.
