Hello Hello! I am home from Oregon and can’t wait to share all of my travels with you. But, first, I want to show you this EASY one piece ottoman slip cover.
I have wanted a slip cover for this ottoman for years. Yes, years. Now that Hubby bought me a sewing machine for Mother’s Day, I have been sewing up a storm. Woo! This is my first project with my new machine. She came out pretty good, I would say…
Here is my 15 year old ottoman. She has been used as a game table, baby bed, and of course a foot rest.
After looking for fabric, I found this one with the greens and little bits of blue that I like. I bought 2 and a half yards of 54 wide.
This is how I knew how much fabric to purchase: I measured the width and length of my ottoman as well as the height. I also measured it from side to side. IE; up the side, across the top, and back down each side. I did this both length and width.
I laid the fabric right side down on the ottoman. Finding the corners of the ottoman, I pinned and marked where I wanted my seams. I left a little room, so I could easily slip it over when I was finished sewing.
Following my pins, I sewed a seam, and cut off the excess fabric.
I ironed open the seams.
For a hem, I folded up the edge 2 times to make a smooth hemline.
Here she is now. Huge difference, wouldn’t you say? She makes me smile every time I look at her! I had enough fabric leftover, so I made a small pillow, too.
When you make your own easy one piece ottoman slip cover, you can make it tighter, add a ruffle or any embellishments you like, to make it your own.
I needed something simple, easy and quick.
I could even make another one with a bold print for a new look. Then I could have 2 separate looks anytime I want-Love it!!

Love your slipcover, I always love something that can be laundered. Goodwill is a great place to find brand new bolts of material I think you have inspired me to sew one for my ottoman happy sewing!
