My brother has been deployed to Afghanistan and his family lives in Alaska right now. Afton, his wife is amazing . . . and very busy. They bought a sofa and loveseat set from the apartment complex I managed, when they were first married. They are ready for a change – just something to extend the life of this furniture until they are finished in Alaska.
A slipcover seemed to be the perfect solution, but, it’s costly to travel to Alaska, and Mom was going anyway to see that sweet little baby, so she and I combined our efforts. I made the cushion covers, helped with piping and planning, and sent Mom on her way with Shelley’s DVD.
I think Mom did a great job. She said the DVD was a lifesaver.
The Alaska pillow was made by my sister, Malerie, by the way. It’s in our blood.
This brown twill is nice and durable for those cute little kids and the contrasting piping makes it a little more interesting. Thank goodness for the DVD.
Maybe I have a new assistant, right mom?
