one of my hardest struggles in my efforts to keep my flat clean is the neverending battle with animal hair (i’m loosing). so everything has a slipcover that gets a thorough shake and wash every once in a while.
this is one of my last endeavors: a new slipcover for my dog’s armchair (yes it’s hers, yes the cat’s sitting in it, he’s cocky like that)
it involved:

a piece of an old blanket (underneath the denim fabric)

couple of old jeans

a piece of this beige fabric i have no idea where it came from

several shoelaces

couple of pieces of velcro from my partners old pair of work pants

couple of old backpack …emmm…belts /straps (no idea what’s it called)

and a piece of cheap knit fabric i used to use as a curtain some years ago to go underneath the chair and tighten and pull on the front part of the slipcover

nothing bought new

and i know the sewing isn’t too neat and precise
but it works, and i made a special effort to make it as fast as i can to make more time for other life commitments 🙂

all in all really happy with it

 

untill next time and take care
