So the Challenge this week on the CSI Project was Slipcovers and Upholstery. Wanna know something sad? I spent the first part of this week MAKING a slipcover that turned out, um…AWESOME!! How did I miss this?! If I’d blogged about it on Wednesday or Thursday then I could have entered. But here’s a horrible, guilty confession: I have seriously been slacking on reading blogs. I am subscribed to WAAAAAYY too many blogs and my Google Reader scares me. I mean like “1000+ unread items” scares me. So sometimes I just check ‘Mark All as Read.” And I’ve totally missed out on stuff lately. Guess I’ll have to weed through the Reader again.
Anyway, here are some amazing slipcovers both handmade and purchased, to kick off my big
Slipcover Reveal Week!
