I finished a project today that I’ve been wanting to do for several months. We have a couch that is still very comfortable to sit or lay on, but the upholstery wore out several years ago. Before we moved to this house, we sewed a piece of fabric over the seat, but it had to be mended several times and was looking horribly dirty. A few months ago, I got the idea to buy some used curtains and sew a slip-on cover, and I found a matching pair of curtains at a secondhand shop for only a few dollars. Finally, this week, I got started working on the job, and finished it today. It’s certainly not a professional job, but hopefully it will extend the life of this couch for awhile!
And, so you get a little cuteness in this post, here is Little Miss:
I have a love seat and a couch in my living room with similar issues. Ya want a job next time you come to Michigan?:) I think that we are going to have them reupholstered………children are hard on furniture. 🙂

Not a chance! This was enough for me. It really wasn’t that hard, though, once I got started. I just measured the big areas and used newspaper held up against the places that weren’t rectangles, to make a pattern. The biggest challenge was sewing a straight line when that heavy fabric wanted to slide around!
