This isn't about a decorating show, per se, but I thought this was still the most appropriate forum in which to post my question. I have a couple of couches that are in excellent shape, save for a few unfortunately placed cat-related holes in the fabric. Having watched more than my fair share of Trading Spaces, it seems as though making slipcovers isn't THAT difficult to do. On the other hand, they *are* professional designers (except in the case of Kia; I won't give her that much credit), so they may just be making it look easy. Have any of you ever tried this? If so, with what results?
Oh, and why aren't I just buying ready-made slipcovers? Well, a) the couches in question are those big loose pillow-back ones, and I've never seen slipcovers that would accomodate that style and b) I've yet to see a slipcover made of fabric I like well enough to want it adorning my couch. If you guys tell me that it's fairly simple to do this, I'd rather go buy a fabric I really like and just use that.
Any thoughts anyone has will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
