Transform ordinary or worn-looking hassocks by dressing them in stunning slipcovers. Each cover is elasticized for easy removal. Covers made of washable fabric such a broadcloth and Indianhead will prove most practical.
Design your own bedding
Wake up a dull bedroom with your own exciting designs in sheets and pillowcases. They’re simple to sew and only look costly.
Fabric for sheet trim, dust ruffle and pillowcases can match wallpaper or provide contrast. Easy-to-wash cotton and blends will work best.
Give your slipcovers a personal imprint with trapunto designs on the seat and back. The circular design we’ve shown was done by machine on ribless corduroy.
A solid color in a fabric such as twill, silk, or velveteen will show off the design to best advantage. If you are a novice at slipcovering, make the cover first in muslin, then tear it apart for a pattern.
A bold appliqued design can turn a bedspread into a focal point. Ours features a contemporary version of an old patchwork motif.
Make the spread from a fairly stiff, ravel-resistant fabric. Our pattern includes instructions on the design and construction of the spread.
