We’ve all got at least one of them. In my case, I had two. Those super useful cube ottomans that are dirty and ripped and kind of embarrassing. Today, I’ll show you how to make a no sew slipcover in less than an hour! It’ll be enough to at least eek out a few more months of use for this sad sorry ottoman.
Pull it as tightly as you can and glue the seam. You’re doing this part inside out, so if there’s excess just trim it down. Now flip it right side out and pull it back onto your cube. Fold down the tops like a present and then fold the edges down. (The pics will make sense)
You just want to make sure your burlap is the right length. In our case, we went for just grazing the floor – but you might want it shorter if your ottoman has nicer legs. The final step is to flip it back inside out, lay your fabric on top, wrong side up and push the edges between the burlap and the ottoman. Add a bead of glue all the way around and fuse the two together.
Voila! There you go! Five seams, a few cuts, a couple hot glue sticks and you are ready to rock out with your feet up 🙂 They aren’t perfect by any means – but they are dog proof and cat proof and easily mended. They also blend in perfectly with the new vibe of our family room!We keep the floral one on this wall and the white one on the other wall so that there’s always an extra spot to perch.So what do you think? Pretty good for a couple episodes of The Mindy Project and a few dollars of burlap right? Ya. You can just call me Beyonce Pad Thai. (That Mindy joke makes me laugh every. single. time.)
Here are a few other quick DIYs I’ve picked for you!
