Ottoman Slipcover Bliss!!!

September 2, 2008

My little bohemian sister Robin is moving to San Francisco, and I inherited from her a nice, comfy ottoman. I could tell the ottoman was in good condition but a little dirty and did not match my decor.  So I made a slipcover for the ottoman using McCall’s pattern 3278, with the help of my mom.  She’s a pro.

This was SO easy!  It took us about 3 hours from start to finish.  The pattern called for piping, but we did not include it.  The pattern could be used for any size ottoman, since you put the dimensions into a formula in order to figure out how much fabric you need.  The sewing was basic, it took longer to cut out the fabric than it did to sew it.  I plan on making a couple more slipcovers. I want to use the ottoman in all of my rooms.  Next time I plan to use a stiffer fabric and add piping.

I LOVE having an ottoman in the living room.
