"How to Slipcover" DVD


My "How to Slipcover Video" walks you through the basics of slipcovering and will give you the skills to slipcover just about anything. I teach you to make a slipcover by pinning it on inside out. I was self taught and learned through trial and error over the past 11 years... with the DVD you can learn without going through the heartache and wasted time that I went through. I am now fast at what I do, and with practice you can be too! The DVD is $45 dollars and 60min. Click below to purchase.

Got my Slipcovers by Shelley DVD and have watched the entire video a couple times. I just have to say: Girl, you R-O-C-K rock!! I'm an intermediate-level sewer and have a sofa that needs a slipcover. I've been putting it off because it is a big project to tackle for my first slip cover, and I was looking for those tips of the trade that are so hard to find in how-to books. Well you certainly provided all the shortcuts and tips! I was able to easily follow your train of thought and understand the steps as you showed them. You make it look so easy! I can't wait to jump in and start cutting and sewing. I've got some other projects in mind as well and I'm so excited about my new-found knowledge. I'm sure I'll be slip covering everything that isn't nailed down in no time! Thank you so much for making this video and for sharing your knowledge and talent with the rest of us!! It was worth every penny. - Trish in Minneapolis

 Morning Shelley, I just tackled my first Wingback!!!! I love the results..thanks for your DVD!! janet xox I'm addicted

Shelly, I just wanted to tell you that your DVD was better then I hoped it would be. I mean it is really, really good!! Outstanding! It has me so excited! I love a smart talented girl. I wish for you all the success you desire, you deserve it...its that great! Tavia

 Shelley, This is Christiana. I just wanted to say hey. I can't tell you how helpful your video and sources have been in getting my business going. I'm pretty happy with how things are going....have a long way to go though! And I LOVE stopping by your website from time to time to get inspired again when I am feeling discouraged, it always motivates me to keep on going when I am thinking what in the world am I doing?!? Hope you and your family had a great Christmas. Thanks so much for everything!

 Shelley, I have to tell you, my hopes were pretty high when I ordered your DVD. I've just a marginal hobbiest, but for some reason I was really believing your DVD would answer all my questions. And, guess what?? IT DID!! I loved your presentation, your thorough instructions and tips; I even appreciated your music selection. Your simple style and straight-forward approach really make me believe I can sew one of these dang things! I felt like you were just my neighbor and you were helping me with a project. Now, I can't wait to get my Bernina tooned-up, find some fabric and some time and tackle my crazy sectional! Thanks so much!

 Hi Shelley: Just wanted to let you know that I have viewed your video 4 times. It is one of the best videos that I have seen to date. Luv it. I've been making slipcovers for about 14 years. Whenever I hear of a video that is out I get it. I 've tried many different techniques and look forward to learning something new. I generally do the the pin the welt in as you go. However, I did learn some things from you that I never considered. Looking forward to implementing them in future projects. shelley, Great Video! Combines several steps, fitting piping technique is the best I have ever seen. Actually, lots of great techniques taught. I don't know how it could be made any easier. Well done!!

 Hi Shelley, I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that I received your DVD in the mail today. I couldn't wait to sit down and watch it! I ripped the package open and watched it on my computer. You did a FABULOUS job!! YOU ROCK!! You made it look soooo easy (which I know it isn't). I can't wait to get started on something. Thank you again for creating such a wonderful easy video to follow along with.

 Well Shelley.....guess how I am ringing in the new year? With your DVD! You are adorable....and holy cow! FAST! I can't belive how fast you can whip that out. I took a couple semesters of upholstery and we used Juki machines. I had forgotten how awesome they were! Anyhow, loved the DVD. I have a phobia of zippers, I hate using them, but you made putting one in look really easy. I might even attempt it now. I'll be watching how you do it several more times before I try. Happy New Year to you. So happy to meet you!

Shelley, Got my superduper secret first off the press dvd. And I am here to tell you, it was wonderful. So fun to watch you and check out the many great tips. I love the way that you sew your slipcovers and the ease in which you sew them and explain. You made me feel like "chilling out" about the whole process! Anyone that wants to learn to slipcover or learn new techniques needs to get this DVD!!! Keep it up girl.

Hi, what sewing machine would you suggest for making slipcovers? I am excited to order your dvd. Thank you so much in advance.

I have an industrial machine (Juki DDL-5530), but I did start out on a home machine for about a year.

If you are just making a few here and there for yourself, a home machine will work. If you are doing them professionally and sewing them every week, you'll need to invest in industrial machines (about $500 used).
