I have been obsessed with a white slipcover for my family room lately. My initial plan was to buy two loose slipovers and alter them to fit my giant family room couch. I quickly disovered that my couch was WAY bigger than any commercially-made slipcovers out there. And I've only been sewing for a couple of years, so sewing a HUGE tailored slipover was SO overwhelming. I didn't know what I … [Read more...]

Duvet out of a shower curtain

Have you ever had a project in your mind and then you just can't find what you are looking for? That's what I ran into with my guest room redo. For the bedding I knew I wanted a grey duvet cover that had some ruffles but not too many - so it wouldn't be too "girly". And I wanted it to be a plain color so I could make some graphic pillows to go with the bedding. I looked and looked and couldn't … [Read more...]
