I made slipcovers for our loveseats back in 1991.
They are still in good condition.
After our major renovation ended in 2014 I washed them to remove the dust and grime. Since then they have been in the conservatory with the seams hanging open.
When we moved the furniture out of the conservatory to have the floors laid we removed the slip covers to wash them again. Unfortunately Charlie also dried them totally in the dryer.
I actually had to rewet them because the covers need to be damp in order to be put back on the sofas. After washing and spinning them I put them in the dryer for about 10 minutes, then ironed the skirts.
I stretched the covers over the loveseats. This time I blind-stitched the opening closed.
Now the loveseats have been set up again in the conservatory.
Do you have a small sewing project you should get to soon?
