This is my first attempt at slipcovering something ala Miss Mustard Seed (check out her blog and tutorials if you're interested). We replaced the giant footstool with a smallish one from the Pottery Barn outlet store. It had a basic muslin cover but was missing the slipcover. Great price though and it fits the room much better. So here I go.
I figured out making slipcovers is not an exact science and the tutorials I had watched kept playing in my head while I was pinning the fabric.
I also kept remembering it was only $20 and my labor, so not much to loose if I didn't like the results.
Last pinning step with everything inside out. First time I pinned the skirt, I did it backwards and had to re-do all of the pins. Other than that and a few things I would do differently next time, I think it came out pretty well.
It's washable too, as I pre-washed the drop cloth before starting. Sorry for the dark spots, I seem to have a smudge on my camera lens.
