slipcover for a tired ottomon.

While I haven't been working on new products for the shop I've been working on a slipcover for one of our ottomons. This particular ottoman is a cream colored microfiber that was stained pretty bad (I forgot to take a before picture). Nothing I tried could get the stains out and I felt it looked a little too modern and boring for me anway. I picked up some pretty checked fabric and began sewing a slipcover for it. Complete with a pleated skirt. I love how it turned out.








It's so much cleaner and classy looking now. It helps our bedroom look just that less chaotic. I love how it turned out and can't stop looking at it, I'm pretty amazed at how it turned out actually. I think it helped having straight lines in the fabric design to line up the pleats so they are all even. Yep much better! Now I just need to get the energy and patience to make a slipcover for that sofa behind it.
