The in-laws have just left and now sitting in your living room is the world’s ugliest sofa! What were you thinking when you agreed to take if off their hands? Now the poor thing is cluttering up your space and it doesn’t match anything you own. The style is wrong, the fabric is homely and the color is….well, you aren’t sure what the original color was. Still you can quickly and inexpensively "makeover" this "dawg" using sofa slipcovers.
You just finished moving in and have collapsed on the sofa. But once you are sitting down you realize just how out of place your old sofa looks in your new place. The color is all wrong and the fabric pattern sticks out like a sore thumb. But you just moved in and you still have bills to pay and you can’t afford any new furnishings. But how can you invite anyone over when your sofa looks so bad? This is why a new slipcover for your sofa in the right matching colors with a different fabric can make all the difference in the world.
Choosing the right slipcover: The slipcover should suit the shape and size of the furniture. It should not be over fitted or loosen to the furniture. They should be semi fitted. A good and right slipcover is stitched well. They should have a loosely constructed structure and shape. They should be made of a good quality of cloth that is comfortable to the human skin. They should not create a burning or itching feeling to the user. They should be inexpensive and durable. They should allow an individual to wash and clean easily.
Of course, choosing the fabric for your chair is also part of the fun. Fabric that you love but might not want to wear now becomes fair game for your furniture. Although dressmaking fabrics can work fine for a slipcover, upholstery fabric is made for the job and will stand up to lots of use and abuse. For your first project, choose a fabric that’s not too heavy, dense, or loosely woven, so that it will be easy to work with. If you want a washable slipcover, be sure to preshrink the fabric by running it through the washing machine.
