Slipcovers for our Couch and Love Seat

For fabric sales 
I found 7 meters for about $35
and 13 meters for about $100.
 The french script fabric is lovely
but expensive so I only got 1 meter
which pushed my creativity.

I have been wanting to slipcover
this couch and a love seat
for some time now. I had to work out a plan
of how I could make the fabric work together and not 
look like I ran out.

With the 13 meters I had just enough to complete this one couch,
very little left over...phew!
It is a thick fabric and I dont know if you can tell but it
has a wonderful grey undertone, yum!

I am so happy with it! It needs a little altering
on the seat cushions, but I couldnt wait 
to post pictures.

The "right" side of the love seat fabric was
really yellow once I brought it home and
under our living room lighting. Not wanting 
any yellow in the living room,
 I flipped it over and used the "wrong"
side.  I do that a lot, use the wrong side.

 It was a  ton of pinning, cutting, basting and serging....

I did a little painting,
trying to industrialize it and
give the love seat some grey to 
work with the couch tones.

I used a little of the french fabric
to cover the lampshade, but it was super painful to 
cut it..:\

Happy Friday
