These hodgepodge pieces use patchwork scraps to create fresh new themes within stodgy old frameworks. (Re)fabric(ation) can be fun. Design by Leftovers takes old and often overly-ornate furnishings that would hardly fit in a modern home, and remakes them to look creative, contemporary and strangely more timeless. If you are at a loss for how to reupholster some household items, look no further for inspiration. While there seems to be much mixing going on, there is a clear set of methods within the madness – each found piece of fabric is stitched into a new whole in a way that is clearly conscious of what appears around it in terms of colors and patterns.

Sewing for the Home ~ Sewing a Slipcover (Part Three) Sewing The Slipcover Use your muslin pieces as you would any regular pattern pieces. If any of your pattern pieces are deficient in the 1″ seam allowance, you can add that onto the upholstery fabric before cutting (just measure 1″ from the masking tape on the pattern piece pinned to the upholstery fabric and mark with a fabric pencil or pin). Keep in mind that the OUTSIDE WING/ARMREST, INSIDE WING, and INSIDE ARMREST pattern pieces must have 2 pieces of the upholstery fabric cut out and that they must be mirror pieces (a right and a left). The easiest way to do this is to fold your upholstery cloth in half with either wrong or right sides facing each other, align your pattern piece on top (not along a fold), and cut around the entire pattern piece. Align the OUTSIDE BACK, INSIDE BACK, and SEAT pieces along a fold line, and then cut.
