Shelley, I purchased the cd for the slipcovers. I have found the fabric on Esty and the lady said she ships it in 6 yard increments. Does this work and will it be the best utilization of the fabric? I am making a slipcover for a couch & loveseat. It is pretty pricey so I want to be as frugal as possible! Thanks so much!
Yes. That will work perfectly. Send pics when you are done!
Hi Shelley, i have a large sectional, 9ft on way and 7 thr other. Its a dune color notenow and it needs color. How much would it cost to make a slip cover? Its an ashley sectional. The name is escaping me atm. Thanks
Stephanie—Sectionals are priced ala carte…so most likely it would be a couch ($420-$480) plus a loveseat ($380-$420) and most likely you’ll need about 40 yds of fabric. I can only do local work to SLC, Ut.
I purchased the advanced slipcover book
And the whole nine yds.
I downloaded the slipcover one and have lost the 9 yards.
Not sure what to do
shoot! just saw this! Glad you found it. These comments aren’t coming to my email.
I found the download
Hi Shelley, I have been a faithful follower of your blog for quite some time and purchased copies of your DVD and ebooks. I am getting ready to purchase an industrial machine and was hoping to gain some insight. My current machine has a separate walking foot that is too wide to handle piping and zippers and wanted to know if you feel like it’s necessary to buy a machine with a built in walking foot?
My industrial machine doesn’t have a walking foot. I have an industrial Juki DDL-5530.
Thanks for your help!
Random question. I have a great couch, very deep, sold bones, but it’s too low. The legs don’t come off. Any recommendations on how to give your couch high heels? Is that in any of your tutorials.
Try bed risers. You will have to slipcover and make a taller skirt to cover the risers.
Do you have any recommendations for laguna niguel California that does the same quality of work that you do?
I’ll be in your area the 1st part of July. Can you wait till then? What did you need done? I can always do a day trip possibly if I am not super busy here. I’ll email you.
Hi Shelly are you still making the Buffalo dinning chair seat covers. Thank you
Hi Shelley, I have an Shabby Chic couch but you would never know it’s and old shabby chic, the slip cover was this nice heavy almost velvety but not velvet, the couch has high side that flair out and a high back and it has round bolsters, I bought it in 2001 and the couch needs help, it’s a two cushion couch, how much would it cost to get a new slipcover, the current one is piped?
I am sorry—I never got a notification for this comment. Can you email me a pic. Couches are usually $420-$500 for labor depending on how many cushions it has.
