. . . weave some cloth onto the ottoman said the voices. I scrambled for cloth, some linens and cottons, and grabbed the pins and scissors. Honestly, within minutes one woven slipcover was in the works. (Admittedly, I had been thinking about my contemporary woven boro class over at spirit cloth!)
The main piece is a cream-colored curtain panel from a rummage sale with tabs removed and sized to the width of the ottoman. I took the scissors to it on both sides, cutting to create the warp, then made random slits in the top and wove tan linen strips across.
The linen strips are long enough to be the warp on the ends.
The blue and tan linen strips took a while to prepare -- linen is hard to rip! Then every strip needed to be ironed because it was curling so much from ripping.
Stitching has only just begun. I slide a book under the area I'm working on so as to not stitch the slipcover to the upholstery.
I hope I'm not crazy for starting this one. I hear voices after all.
