Guess what?

It may be your favorites too….because….

Over 3,493 people visited this post….just this month.

One of the main questions, I am asked,  is how I did my slip-covered cushions.

I need to clarify.

They were SUPER easy for me.

Because, I didn’t do them.

The $6.00 per cushion….

That is the total of how much the seamstress charged me, PLUS my cost of fabric per cushion.


If I could sew….I would follow some of these awesome tutorials that I found on some AWESOME blogs that show you how to do slip-covers like these.


You would save yourself the $6.00 per cushion that I had to hand over to someone else.


If you wanted to….you could then come over to my house and show me how to do it and save ME $6.00 a cushion. I’ll give you a Diet Dr. Pepper if you teach me.

If you wanted.

I’m just saying.

But first steps first, before you and I schedule our lesson time……here are the awesome blog tutorials!

MMS did a slip cover series. OMG….she is soooooo stinking smart!
Here is just ONE part to her series!

Video Slipcover Tutorial Series Part Six – Skirt, Cushion, Tips and Inspiration from Miss MustardSeed on Vimeo.

Cottage at Magpie had a really great EASY pillow slip-cover tutorial that looks ALOT like mine did. The seamstress had the same covers on mine, except for the fabric for the “depth” of the cushion part. A really neat tutorial, that if I could thread my needle on my machine, I would think I could tackle!

Here is the link to her tutorial:


I hope these gifted ladies and their awesome tutorials will help you with your slip-cover dreams.

I visited a Goodwill in Camden, SC, this past weekend…..and a couch and chair, almost exactly like this were for sale there. Cushions were not smoky like mine  and the bones of their piece were even prettier.

Guess how much they were priced?

Your guess higher than $50.00 or less than $50.00?

Let me just tell you……..

$2.50 each!

I wanted to puke that I couldn’t take them home.

I’m telling you people…these little pretties are out there and diamonds in the “rough”. People do NOT see their potential and you can get them CHEAP!

You can snag them up!

I am doing a little chair like this and can’t wait to show you the before and afters!

Let me know if these tutorials are what you need!

Have you tackled slip-covers?

Have you found your bugly chair that needs transformed?

I want to know.

Want to hear from you……

    hey gal ! Thanks for the great info..I have slipcovers I bought for much more and I hate them they always get messed up even thoough they have elastic edges and are stretchy and fitted.  I hope I can get new sofas someday and start all over.  yours looks great !

    Your couch looks really good! You must have the best GWs down there! Here in central Ohio they would have probably wanted $50 or more for the couch and chair.  I found another thrift store tho’ that is really cheap but is a very small place, not a lot of inventory.  Cracking open a Diet Dr. Pepper, right now =)

    Long, long before I’d even heard of a blog, I slipcovered cushions for a platform rocker and for a ThisEndUp brand (if anyone remembers, they’re solid pine with cushions) love seat.  I took pictures with film (I told you long, long, ago).  IF i can find them and IF I can scan them, I’ll put them up.  I used  a book, I don’t even think I had a computer.  Dark ages….  Wish I learned blogging as quickly as I learned sewing.  Sewing comes much more naturally.  At least the directions aren’t in computerspeak, just plain English, LOL
