Business is good!

well as is typical for this time of year business is booming and I am all booked up until beginning of next year! This is one on the projects that I just finished up with and I love the way it turned out. Stephanie always seems to find fantastic fabric. oh yeah and my couch. I finished this up a couple of weeks ago and finally got around to taking some pics . of it. I was working on doing a more relaxed fit with this piece. I usually make my slipcovers more fitted but every once in a while I will get a request for a more casual fit. I'm happy with it although I have to say that I think for my self I like the more fitted look
I do however love the fabric that I found it's a Ralph Lauren print on a heavy canvas (perfect for all all the fall colors in the house right now) oh yeah and I found it for under 6.00 a yard!!!!! . although I must say I am kinda missing my white.



One thing that I did do on this one is to remake the back cushions. when I purchased the couch a few years back for 100.00 at a local thrift shop I picked it because it was super sturdy and the cushions were down filled, but the back cushions were really short so I tucked them away and used pillows for the back which was fine but they always needed fluffing so I remade the original ones adding some height to them and I really like them now



and you know me I couldn't resist some cuteness on the back!!
Have a great rest of the week!

Love the new cover! I like the relaxed fit so to speak, but that's just me! I hope to get my stupid slipcovering project done this winter. I've been saying this for over a year now. You're probably sick of hearing it!
