Remember when mauve and blue was the fashion in the 1980s?
In the early 90s I fell in love with this flowered fabric and made some window valances. I used some of the left over fabric to sew a slip cover for an old ottoman.
First, I added some batting to the top piece and quilted it.

Then I made piping using pink blanket binding.
After attaching the piping I sewed the bottom fabric piece to the quilted top.
The original fabric on the ottoman is dark brown and it's that fabric from the 1950s that never wears out. I don't know what it's called but it lasts forever but... it's not soft...it has a stiffness to it.

I have a confession to make. I've had the same curtains in my guest bedroom for over 20 years. I bought the bedroom set (sheets, quilt cover and curtains at JC Penney for over $600...which was a lot for me to pay at that time). I guess you can tell I'm not one to change things just because it's not in style. I don't use the heavy bed quilt anymore. That's packed away now.
I should start sewing again...but then I would have to put down my crocheting.
