Slipcovered Chairs and ottomans

These slipcovers are made out of drop cloth!!  I wish I had taken a before picture. 
Cubed ottoman slipcover with white denim.  Please excuse the mess in the background.  I was sorting out my children's clothes to sell and give away.  My friend Lydia found a picture of a gorgeous cubed ottoman in Veranda and used that as her inspiration.  She wanted it very simple.  No pleats.  I used piping around the top and the 4 corners have a cute stitch on each side of the seam.

Here is a close up of the stitching on each side of the seam.  This is actually another chair she has in linen but I don't have a close up of the ottoman stitching.  It looks just like this.  I love the extra detail it gives on such a white piece of furniture.
I have a client who is a designer and she has me sew a lot of things for her clients.  This particular client was redoing her bedroom and found this great ottoman at Habitat Restore for a great price.  She really wanted to try out the new trend of mixing fabrics and textures with an ottoman.  The top is a silver velvet and the band is a grey and white small chevron.  The skirt is a textured zebra print and inside the pleats are the silver velvet.  What a fun ottoman!  This was more difficult than I anticipated due to the thickness of the fabrics.
