Fancy, floral and free!

I am just dying over my this client I just did work for.  She is a doll!  She is in her 80's and shows no signs of slowing down!  I secretly want to be her when I am her age.  She had 2 love seats she wanted slipcovered and man oh man she was on the ball!  On the day of her fitting she had emails to write,  bust the chops of Comcast customer service for messing up her internet and aerobics to get too.  Oh how I love her!! She was so sweet and soo appreciative of me.. How could you not love her??  Here is a before shot of her pair of love seats..
The love seats were in great condition, the upholstery fabric was just "grabby".  She felt like they attracted dirt and were hard to keep clean when the great grandkids came to play.  So she picked up this great quilted floral fabric from Home Fabrics for her new slipcovers!

These slipcovers just scream"Happiness" to me!  The fabric colors worked perfect with the rest of her home and the fabric is super soft!  Its literally like sitting on a freshly washed quilt, begging you to curl up and enjoy it!  I kept all the lines the same, nice a traditional.  Its very traditional fabric, ya know..  This fabric shrunk quite a bit, but nothing a good iron could not fix.. My client was over the moon happy with the way they turned out.  That was my favorite part of the whole job!

I am working on a chaise and a few other odd and ends this week. I can't wait to post before and afters of it!

I currently have a few spots open in April for slipcovers.  Contact me to get on my list.  Also, I have 2 spots open in my Slipcover 101 Workshop.  Its going to be a blast so don't wait to sign up, spots will fill before you know it!
