    Quilted Recliner Slipcover-thing

    You know that big thing in the living/TV room? The one that gets grubby and full of snack crumbs? No, not the DH....his recliner!

    Well, the one in my living room looked pretty grubby and needed a new outfit. So I quilted a couple of yards of fabric to a plain black backing then pinned and cut and sewed like making a slipcover but with binding around the edges. Came out pretty well. It tucks in at the back and sides...needs adjusting after DH and the dogs have wrestled around in it, but it goes in the wash and comes out clean!

    I agree, would love to see a tutorial on how you did this. Beautiful and so wonderfully functional. Waiting (smile)!
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    A great idea, I need to get to work on one for my sad recliner.
    With quilters for friends, I will always be warm.
