    Quilted Batik Furniture Covers

    We have been using some Sure Fit furniture covers that were way too big for this delicate furniture, and I finally made some customs covers. I used Tonga Batik in 108" wide and clingy brown flannel on the back. Here are a few photos of the finished couch cover. I am still working on the chair cover.

    Basically this is a large rectangle, with smaller rectangles attached to the sides for arm pieces. I free motion quilted each piece with large stippling, fitted them, then trimmed and bound them. I used a few upholstery pins to secure them in place.

    Voila!

    I love it!!!! I have one from Bed Bath and Beyond that has done well, but I wash it frequently, thus It's time for something else. You have done a great job. Thanks for the idea and much easier on the pocket book

    Looks great, easier to clean then the furniture. I should think about this as my cats lay on the furniture. Great idea.

    that is wonderful and a great idea. Protection for the couch from hair etc. Good job. Great idea, I may give it a try. Love the color of it too. Love your dog too, so healthy looking and pretty.
