Boy Dance Party

This past weekend I headed up north with just me, my daughter and a bunch of slipcovers. That means the boys were left home. Alone. To fend for themselves! I had a feeling that a Boy Dance Party was going to break out. And I am pretty sure it did! If you watch SNL than you know exactly what I am talking about…Exactly! Their lips were sealed when I got home so that can only mean one thing… BOY. DANCE. PARTY.

My brother and his cute wife are about to have their first baby so we had 2 back to back showers to attend. It was fun to see family and friends and boy did they make out like bandits! They literally ran out of room in their nursery because of all the stuff they got! They have 3-ish weeks left for baby to come and we couldn't be happier for them!

Like I said, the car was also packed with slipcovers to drop off. Most of slipcovers I came back with last month got shipped out, so maybe one day I'll have after photos for you, but the remaining slipcovers belonged to a cute client of mine that inherited a couch and 2 wing chairs that no one else in the family wanted. Well, their loss because she scored! The furniture was in great condition. Just a bit dated. She had made curtains for her front room where the furniture would be going and wanted it all to be cohesive. So she found fabric in like a day (seriously!) that coordinated with them. She picked a blue textured upholstery fabric for the couch and a neutral and blue jacquard for the wing chairs. Normally upholstery fabric is a bad choice for slipcovers because it is soo heavy but she lucked out with this fabric. It was not as stiff or heavy as most and it actually draped pretty well. She kept the lines similar to the original pieces.

Couch before:


I was really happy with how it turned out. Here is one of the 2 wing chairs, I did not have a great before picture. Use your imagination. It was pink. Enough said. The fabrics she chose complimented each other really well.

She was soo happy with how they turned out! I was just glad she was patient with me no the time frame..LOL!

My next trip up north won't be till the end of the month when my little niece is born, but I will be scheduling fittings. So hit me up if you want on the list! Until then I am going to enjoy the warm weather, figure out how to entertain my kids next week during spring break and finish up sewing projects around my house.. maybe.


  1. Thank you so much!! We have been enjoying our "new" furniture! Getting the couch and chairs covered has sparked more ideas :). I might be calling again.

  2. I am soo glad!! Your family will be jealous that they did not take the free furniture..LOL!
