When I was visiting my aunt for the holidays a few weeks ago I noticed that she had redecorated her home and she had this really great velvet slipcover for this chair that she had made herself. I thought that it was so beautiful that I wanted to recreate one for an armchair in our living room. It also looked very wintery and thought it would be fun to try to make on my own.
I went online with my clear wireless internet to figure out some directions for how to make a slipcover for an arm chair. I took the measurements of the chair and then took all of that into account too. I also picked up enough fabric at the local fabric store to make the slipcover.
Well, I finished my velvet slipcover and it looks pretty good. I guess the fabric isn’t as forgiving as canvas or other fabric that’s typically used for slipcovers that you have to tuck in. But it’s really comfortable to sit in, which I guess is what counts the most.
