Drop Cloth Slipcover!!

Welcome to White Weathered Hutch!!!

Ok the jig is up.   Did you see my sneak peak here.

Remember this sofa in my living room.

It's very large, but still in excellent shape.  So do you go out and buy new orrrrr......

Make a slipcover.  Well that's exactly what I did.

I  didn't want it too fitted,  so I cut a panel for the back and added ties. Like the wood to show
since my coffee tables are so formal.

Measured from top to bottom and new it needed a shirt.

 Did some ripping here and there.
Added this little ruffle and there you have it folks.

 My own customized dropcloth slipcover.

Looks like Fergus likes it!!
Now to start on the other sofa.......

What have I created.......   Dropcloth Fever.
Yes, I also moved the furniture around.  Now I need to change those lampshades.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It makes my day!!

  1. Good Morning Linda, Firstly, I have to say, I'm in love with Fergus, he is gorgeous. You are very talented. Your slip cover totally changes the look of the settee, what a fabulous job.Have a good day. Best Wishes Daphne

  2. You did a great job on the slip covers!! Glad you are able to post pictures again ;-)

  3. Your slip covers are awesome. I love the look of drop cloth! I want to try to make slip covers for my sofa, but I don't know how it would work with my formal like sofa! It is such an odd shape.
    Your sofa slip covers are wonderfully done and you have such good skills and taste!

  4. Love the drop cloths for furniture covers. I bought two 9x12 drop cloths easy to throw over sofa and tuck in ... no worries about dogs on the furniture, just pull it off and toss in the washer.

  5. That turned out beautifully and I like the way you let the wood show with the ties. Hmmmmm, now what can I drop cloth cover.... Ann

  6. I love the look, Linda! It looks exactly how I like sofas to look. Oh, and what is is with Westies and the backs of sofas? I know of so many who do that, although Bonnie is too scared...she is odd in that way.

    Fergus is just too dang cute....seeing him on your blog has made my day!


  7. O'Linda, your slipcover looks GREAT! I love that you left the wood on the top exposed!! Your room has completely changed by just adding the slipcover. Enjoy your evening, Gail

  8. Fergus is a cutie. Love the slipcover. It has a great casual feel.

  9. Your new slipcover looks great Linda! It is nice to be able to change things around once in a while. Fergus is cute!

  10. Great job on your slip cover. I like that the wood shows. Love the pillow fabric. Looks really nice!

  11. The new slipcover came out and looks really good. Love the touches on the couch.


  12. Looks great! I've been wanting to use drop clothes for my couch as well, but I can't seem to find 100% cotton ones.

  13. Excellent job Linda, don't you love how versatile dropcloths are, I love them!

  14. Wow, I'm impressed. Gives your sofa a nice updated look.

  15. Looks beautiful - makes me want to go find some dropcloths and get sewing!

  16. I love slipcovers! And....I love dropcloths used for fabric. Great combination! I know you will enjoy the versatility of having it. You did a great job making it fit your sofa. I have a well made sofa underneath my slipcover too. That is one reason I haven't gone out to buy a new sofa. They're too darn expensive for a good one too.

  17. Great job. I have a link party on Wednesdays, and I would love it if you would link this and any other posts. It is called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party. It runs from Wednesday to Sundays.
    I hope to see you there. I am your newest follower, and I would love for your to follow me also. Have a great Day.

  18. Oh wow Linda! I love your dropcloth slipcover. It looks beautiful!!!

  19. Slipcovers are great for giving a neutral look to perfectly good furniture. I like that you kept the wood showing, it reminds me of one Miss Mustard Seed made for a settee.

  20. Love this! I want to make a slip cover so badly! I am looking for the perfect chairs to add to my family room to slip. You did a fabulous job!

  21. Love it! I used the biggest drop cloth I could find at Lowe's, looks okay but sure wish I could sew one like you did:) My sofa is 109" very hard to find slipcovers large enough to fit it!

  22. You did a great job with your slipcover. Makes a big difference. Thanks for sharing at DIYbyDesign.

  23. CUTE!
    I have a settee and chair that have needed covering since I got them 2 1/2 years ago; right now they have sheets thrown over them...but If I don't get them re-upholstered soon (or tossed out according to The Honey) ...I may need to put a slip cover...something like this would be great.

  24. That slip cover turned out great Linda. Thanx for joining THT!
