A New Slipcover for my shameful couch

Several years ago I inherited this ugly, schizophrenic yet comfortable couch. 

She sat in the unfinished basement for a few years and was never used.  Then about 4 years ago, I moved and didn't have an unfinished area to hide her in.  So, I am embarrassed to say this, but she has been sitting in my house just as ugly as can be and I didn't do a thing about it. 

Finally, I have gotten my act together and made my very first slipcover...

Doesn't she look so much better?  Now I don't have to be ashamed when people come to my house.

Did you notice the adorable embroidered throw pillows?  Aren't they great?  These were a gift from my mom and you can read all about them here.  Stop by her blog and check them out!!!
