FINALLY! A new slipcover for my sofa!!


Happy Wednesday to all my bloggie friends !!

Yes, I have FINALLY gotten my new slipcover for my sofa, yeah !! I purchased it on Ebay, from a seller who offers slipcovers made for the Pottery Barn Basic Sofa, not actually by Pottery Barn, so the cost was WAY less ~ It fits pretty well, but the slipcover for the body of the sofa is quite tight in fit ~ I had a very hard time getting it on ! The cushions for the back and bottom fit perfectly...no problems there, lol. And I must say.....I AM LOVING IT.



My shabby white pillows look much better displayed on the sofa now that it has the new slipcover...



I also wanted to share with you all this photo of a pair of pillow covers that I made for one of my Etsy buyers ~ In the center is the Rose Garden Tea fabric, and I used a pretty pink & white striped print for the body and the ruffles ~ at the top of each is a snippit from a Vintage hanky with pretty embroidered pink roses.



Rachel, over at SHABBY FRENCH FOR ME is having a wonderful Giveaway ~ a chance to win one of 2 copies of the Book, Vintage by Nina ~ Be sure to click on the link at the top of my sidebar to wisk you there for a chance to enter. I'm keeping my fingers crossed ~ would love a chance to win this book.

Until next time sweet friends.

You will love your new slip covers! I have had mine for almost 7 years, 3-4 times a year I take the base cover off, turn it inside out, zipper it back up and soak it in bleach water for 15 minutes before finishing the wash cycle. I use regular laundry soap and also throw in one packet of dishwasher soap ( Like cascade) they come out like brand new. I put mine back on the couch slightly damp so they will stretch, since yours are tight you will probably want to do the same. I wash the cushions covers more often, but cover them with white sheets, because they are used everyday. There, was that to much info

The modern sofa can look very attractive, one such popular design here in Britain is the arm curved style. This very popular style comes in choices of straight arms or without arms and this look especially can make your room look very modern and attractive.
