Gray Hexagon Ottoman

This ottoman was for a client that I did baby bumpers for about 18 months ago...She decided this white ottoman wasn't very practical with a one year old. She ordered this amazing gray hexagon fabric that mimicked the shape of the ottoman. I love this fabric!!!

Ottoman Before...darling but not washable.

After...ottoman slipcovered in gray hexagon fabric.
I matched the band to the skirt...I didn't worry about the matching on the top edge, since it was angled and not really possible to match on all sides. Plus we were a little tight on fabric.

Random Story about me-- When I was little I used to watch my mom sew...I would sew purses and doll clothes. When I was in 6th grade, I was going to take guitar lessons at school. My mom had an old guitar for me to use, but one case. So what was a girl to do???? I made one out of my brothers old jeans. I pieced it together and made a button kind of like a box cushion, but for a guitar and made out of white and blue levis. So I guess this would be my first "official" slipcover.

PS...finally found the perfect ottoman at my Salvation Macy's. Down side is that it came with a chair!

Looks like I will be slipcovering an ottoman and a chair ;->

I love that print, it is perfect for the ottoman. I recently covered an ottoman myself. I also took guitar lessons when I was young but was not as ambitious as you - wish we could see your 'first slipcover' you must have made all the kids jealous.
