Raise your hand if you are totally intimidated by the thought of sewing your own slipcovers. I know I am. So many times I've looked longingly at my monstrous sectional and dreamed of someday having enough guts to cover its brown microfiber with something actually attractive.
Does that sound familiar? Well, help is on the way! Shelley from Custom Slipcovers by Shelley, AKA the guru goddess of slipcovers, has made an instructional DVD, and she's giving one away!
Her DVD spells out all the steps of how to successfully create slipcovers with your own two hands! (And sewing machine and all that stuff, but you knew that). She makes it seem *gasp* SIMPLE! And get this: FUN!
Shelley has been making slipcovers for over ten years, so she knows all the tips and tricks of the trade. What started as a hobby has turned into a thriving business, so much so that she has had to hire additional seamstresses. Not only that, she has single-handedly paid off her basement, cars, and HOUSE with the profits from her slipcovers. Wowza.
She says, "If you want to learn to make slipcovers to redecorate on a budget, or if you want to make some extra money, learning the art of slipcovering is an invaluable tool and skill. If you love fabric and decorating and have some sewing skills, you will become obsessed with the possibilities of what you can do with an ugly piece of furniture."
Shelley also recently came out with an ebook called Pillow Talk, which features 22 pages of step-by-step instructions with pictures and tips. Learn to sew all the pillow styles shown in the picture:
(She swears sewing zippers on pillows is 10 times faster than hand-sewing them shut, which is what I always do. Or hot glue when I'm lazy. I should be ashamed of myself!)
