Slip Covering a Glider and Ottoman

 A friend of a friend asked me if I could slip cover a glider and ottoman for her, she was having a baby girl and it was too masculine.  I was excited about trying it because I hadn't done a glider before!  It was pretty fun!  The blue is the BEFORE shot.
 This is the AFTER.  I think it turned out pretty good.  It wasn't super hard to do either.  But it was a lot of putting the fabric on, pinning, sewing, putting it on again, pinning, sewing, etc.  You kind of have to make up the pattern as you go.  But it was fun.
It turned out sweet, and I was just glad I got it done before the baby arrived!  Whew!  I looked at this website for guidance in making slip covers.  http://www.essortment.com/yourself-make-glider-rocker-slip-cover-15439.html

They were pretty good!  I'd like to try a wingback chair next that I have in my house and it's just a hideous pink.  It's from my childhood in the 80's when mauve was so big.  :)
