I just couldent stay away

Yes I'm back at it after a brief but very much needed brake I'm back in business and very excited to be doing what I love to do.
Slipcovering is in my blood I guess. While on my brake from slipcovering I have done 4 complete slipcovers for myself and family.  I just can't stop myself.   I'll have pictures of what I've been up to in a week or two  but for now I'm off on a top secret, week long vacation.
Have a good week!
PS. have you ever slipcovered your lamp shade?

two dollars + two hours=....

Equal's fun pj's. Spring is here and that means garage sales are everywhere.

 Although I did not find what I was looking for ( chairs to slipcover) yeah I'm back at it, more on that later.  I did find a great vintage linen table cloth.  The table cloth was just big enough to eek out a pair of pajamas for summer.
 I used an existing pair of pajama pants for the pants pattern and the top was a pattern from this book   

I really had to get creative with the placement of my pattern pieces but I do like the way they turned out.
hope you're finding great stuff out there too.
