We got a great free couch from a friend’s parents last summer and I’ve been planning forever to make a cover for it to protect from dog dirt but with school in the fall and then home repairs over the Christmas holidays I never got around to it. Then last night I was fed up with the cat scratching at the couch and I decided I was just going to make the cover. I had some fabric I’d picked up from the thrift store and I figured I would just make it work. The colour isn’t what I would have chosen in a perfect world but it isn’t bad. I’m actually surprised at how nice it looks for a quick project.
The cover was super simple to make – it took about 3 hours in total. I’m going to keep my eye out for some more fabric to make one for the basement couch now.
