Sew Diy Slipcovers

Diy slipcovers – Adding your own style or personality to your slipcovers by creating details that make your slipcover look special, and not like you bought it from a big box store.  One way to do this is through the type of closure you use whether it is a zipper, Velcro, ties or buttons. You can add button details with turn cord as the buttonhole.

Skirts are another opportunity to kick your slipcover up a notch. Some people like self-lining the skirts as they find they drape much nicer and in the case where the slipcovers will be washed the fabric will all behave the same. This same principle applies to diy slipcovers as well; a decking fabric is not going to behave the same as your main fabric. Remember, making sure to measure your piece of furniture properly is very important.

When you look at your piece you want to notice where the widest spot is for the section you are working on. For an outside back and outside arms it is often the top of the cut that is your widest point.  There are some pieces where the top of the outside arm extends farther back than the bottom. But the lower front of the outside arm extends farther than the top and you need to make sure you are paying attention to those details when measuring. Take your time and get these measures right the first time for the diy slipcover project.
