A couple of years ago I sewed some slipcovers out of sheets to make the dark colored couch feel a little more summery!
This project involved quite a bit of sewing….
When I got the slipcovers out this year, they looked a little shabby and I just wasn’t in the mood to SEW…or not so much anyway!
They turned out great….super cool and comfy to sit on….and the stretchy fabric is great for getting a tight fit! All in the space of about 2 hours worth of work….not including the hours I spent browsing in the fabric store!I especially like the fact that they are easy to remove to wash….just in case!!
I used the leftover fabric to make some cooler feeling pillow covers for the chairs in the living room too!
I used the “pillow sham” Technique for these!
Which like in the kid’s book…If you Give A Mouse a Cookie….
leads me to….
If I tell you about one project….
I will probably need to tell you about another one that fits the
NO SEW theme….
Since I always buy WAY too much fabric….
the extra blue and white fabric from the box cushion project resulted in a summery look for the basement family room couch cushions last summer.
The covers are on the couch right now….
that project led to the Winter Warm Up Look using some yummy red print…
using the same
ALMOST NO SEW technique….
The box cushions and couch cushions for $35 and a couple hours of work!
And when the weather turns cooler….
they are on the shelf ready for a 10 minute swap out!
So if your couch needs some sprucing up…..or if you just like changing things up once in awhile….
You don’t need to spend much money….
You don’t need to spend much time….
You don’t need to wait…
All you need to do is ALMOST NO SEW something!
Have a great day!
