How'd I do? My first slipcover attempt.

From the class called, Custom fit slipcovers with Kim, I did this!! First, I must have watch Kim 25 times while doing it. I was able to cover new but ugly furniture that came with this beach condo. I did the larger sleep sofa and all the cushions first Then I did the love seat. The chairs were not covered in the video, but from what I learned, I could figure it out. I took the existing cushions and made patterns with the pieces. The chair on the left was the most challenging. I made darts to fit that shape. It was also fun to make the cushions in a coordinating color. The colors of turquoise, lime green and white feel so fresh. And when my daughter spilled some coffee on the love seat, did I yell at her because she was a slob...? Nah....I simply pulled the entire cover off and washed it. White duck is so easy because you can give it a touch of bleach if necessary. You can't do that with a color fabric. The coffee stain came out with just regular detergent. Kim, you gave me a great skill. Now I feel like I can slip cover just about anything. P.S. Just noticed the changed rug in the photos. The chevron is the new rug. I had fun making the three printed pillows with identical fabric, but changed the trim on each. Thank you
