Ideas for Make Sectional Couch Covers
Sectional couch covers – If you are a do-it-yourself type of person and prefer to make your own items to match your interior design style, then you will enjoy this project. The cost of inflatable castles can run almost as much as buying a new sectional sofa if you want to fancy fabrics. In this project, you will learn how to make a cover for a sectional sofa and it will not cost you a fortune. Fabrics come in a variety of styles and colors. A wonderful option is a stretch microfiber material. The fabric is easy to clean and easily stretches while fitting over the sectional pieces.
Measure, you can choose to sew individual covers for each piece if the cushions are separated or you can simply make a cover to review the entire sectional piece. For this project, a sleeve for each sectional is sewn. Begin by measuring the front, back and sides of your sectional including any ottomans to determine how much fabric is needed. Make sure to leave at least a 1 inch margin around the edges of the fabric pieces once they are cut.
Cut, after you have made your selection of the fabric and have measured the amount of fabric that is needed, cut the pieces. Then sew, remove one piece at a time from the sectional sofa, match and light the pieces together with right sides together. Then sew a 5/8 inch seam to form the seat and back part of the sleeve. Sewing the hem of the piece by folding the lower part of the lower edge and another of 5/8 of an inch of seam. When finished, place the sleeve over the sectional piece so it was made and move on to the next piece. Working in this way will allow you to stay organized and avoid mixing the pieces of cloth.
