DIY Faux Fur & Velvet Ottoman Cover

diy Faux Fur & Velvet Ottoman Cover 

Okay so this is how this went down. I went into Hobby Lobby. That was the first mistake (or at least I'm sure my husband would think so ;) and I went in there looking for foam for building my ottoman. ^^^^ the one you see in the picture. 

So I went in there obviously I came out with more than I needed just fabric but I found this velvet fabric 1.5 yards of the soft deep gorgeous make me want to snuggle Santa Clause red velvet fabric. Plus this awesome faux fur and my mind exploded and it was like love at first sight. So.. I bought it. I thought it would be cute to drape over the ottoman. 

It was super simple. 

Plus it was plain to see the kids love it. Imogen was telling me how she loved it and thought it was so soft. So I leaned in real close and I looked at her and I said 

" You know Santa Clause? This is exactly what his clothes feel like... " 

So it's safe to say her whole day was made. 

All you need for this project is a sewing machine. Well plus the fabric but thats kind of  obvious. All I did was sew the 2 pieces of fabric so they were inside out then left a corner unsown so I could pull the cover through then I just stitched the corner up by hand.

Pretty simple and its the perfect little piece to add to your living room. I really love the faux fur look these days. It adds a little bit of fanciness to the room plus you won't break the bank buy making it yourself. I mean I looked up faux fur blankets and there was no way I could pay $200+ dollars on something like that so I am definitely glad I did this little DIY project. It was fun.
