On my mind...

 White.
Somewhat.

 Tailored.

Slipcovers.

Yes, I know I am crazy to want them with the goings on and grape jam/ booger fingers in my house.  

I'll just go to my happy place and pretend this is me with the well trained men in my life...
lalalalala.
 But screw it.  When there is a will there is a way.  And I am pretty non-anal about that stuff.

I am currently making some for my big pair of microsuede lovin' couches.
I have 2 chairs that I slipcovered 4 years ago and they are holding their own (thanks to Clorox) pretty damn nicely. See..... no boogs....
Please note the sewing hell of fabric on the dining room table
 (amongst more happy azaleas, love them and I am getting sad they are almost gone outside) 
and the soon to be slipcovered, tired looking microsuede arm to the right.

They will be fabulous damn it!  

I will be back soon folks.
I can't promise any good tutorials because I am a cheater when it comes to sewing.
I burn out quick and skip steps, so trust me you will be better off Googling a How To, (as would I).

But if anyone has any good cheater tips please tell.  I will be doing this in spurts at night after the kids are asleep and I have finished all my other work, so yes I will be tired and looking for shortcuts and all the help I can get.

Of course they'll look fabulous!!! You got this, and I always cheat on sewing! You go girl! Can't wait to see the final result!

I used sailcloth curtains for my fabric and used the already sewn seams as my bottom hem.

My sofa is 8 feet long and the sewing was almost the end of me. But I love the result.

I'm working in the exact same thing for my 2 leather club chairs - not a quick project but I'm nearing the finish line.

I've been thinking of a white slipcover for my couch also! Its just me a dog and cat in the house most of the time. You would think I could keep it clean. But I spill coffee more times than I'd like to admit.

Good luck with your slipcovers. I can't wait to see the end result.

I have done this ... and sworn I'd never do it again! But now I need a new slip for my sofa ... you just might be the kick I need!! Good luck, I know you can do it!

When my kids were small some brilliant soul told me to embrace white because you can bleach it unlike other colours. Can't wait to see how you do this.

I have 4 kids and two white slipcovered couches! It's the best purchase I made because I can wash them...it's way grosser to have boogers on something that can't be removed and cleaned!
