Slipcover Fabric Favorite: Stone Washed Canvas

Canvas made from 100% cotton, cotton blends, linen and hemp make a casual, versatile slipcover for everyday use.

Grey Stonewashed Canvas or SlipcoversOne of my new favorites is Vintage Stone Washed Canvas in color Grey Stone, a cotton poly blend with a subtle distressed finish.

Stone wash gives this thick, durable fabric a soft, broken-in feel. Very comfy! The little bit of polyester content minimizes wrinkle.

For best results, preshrink this canvas to work out residual shrinkage. Washing & drying the yardage will also enhance the softness.

Linen Slipcover Copy for Cisco Sofa

Natural Heavyweight Linen for SlipcoversA quality heavy weight linen makes a beautiful and long wearing slipcover. One of my favorites is Manchester Natural Brown.

This linen has a European look & feel that never goes out of style. I especially like the authentic flax color, a warm neutral that works with everything.

Manchester Linen is thick and weighty. It’s best suited for classic, washable slipcovers that have simple details — an ideal choice for my customer’s pair of Cisco sofas.

Custom Canvas Slipcover for Wingback Chair

Wingback Slipcover in Carr Go Canvas Natural

Upholstered Wingback Before SlipcoverWingback chairs never go out of style. But upholstery color and patterns do.  A versatile, neutral color slipcover can fix that!

For this custom-fit cover, my customer chose Carr Go Canvas in color Natural. It’s an 8 oz. cotton fabric that makes a light to medium weight slipcover and is dressier than utility canvas. Works best for pieces that get moderate use.

To create a smooth, tailored fit over the curved top (between the wings) I inserted a narrow panel. It bridges the front to the back without gathers or tucks.
