Im finally back to show you how I used that buffalo check fabric. I have a thing for buffalo check, and snatch it up every time I find a color I like. I had been searching for some fabric that really wowed me to make slips for the porch furniture. I looked online for outdoor fabric, and searched JoAnn’s but nothing jumped into my cart and screamed, “I gotta have it”.
I was getting quite discouraged and decided to stop at TJMax to find some jeans for my boys and while wandering through the clearance section I spotted GREEN BUFFALO CHECK. They were tablecloths and I decided I would use them on the tables for Cody’s graduation party. On my way home I started thinking maybe there was enough fabric to make slips for the porch.
I think they were just destined be slipcovers. They fit perfectly….I used two large rectangle tablecloths for the swing and the third to cover the chair and love seat. It couldn’t have worked out any better. I only had to make one cut and the rest was just sewing side seams. I did it all in less than an hour. Here’s the best part, it only cost $9….hooray for the clearance rack.
I hate to spend a lot of money when my critters seem to lounge on the furniture, so if it only last a season it was well worth the time and money. I tire of things quickly anyway and will probably want a new color for next year.
By the way, I didn’t stage these photos in any way. I thought I would let you see how it looks for our everyday living. I didn’t straighten a cushion, broom the deck, or shoo the animals away. So today you see a little of just how we live.
