I bought this ottoman several years ago at a second hand store. Recently I had it slip covered with a simple cover that I made from drop cloth fabric. But I knew that was temporary.
I did this project without much sewing at all! You could do this by sewing only 3 short seams and using fabric glue or iron on adhesive for your hem.
You will need:
4 yards of 54" fabric
a measuring tape
iron on adhesive (if you don't want to sew your hem)
staple gun and staples
I first cut a piece to cover the top of the ottoman.
I measured from the staple line to the floor to get my length for the skirt, about 11" and then added enough for hem. I then measured the circumference of the ottoman and cut 3 lengths of fabric 13" wide, about two and a half the length of the circumference of the ottoman. I sewed the ends together so I that I had a continuous length, that made a circle and was 13" wide.
I put a hem in one side so that my skirt would have a finished hem. You can use iron on adhesive for this step. I do that often when I'm making slip covers or doing reupholstery because your seam is invisible. Because I had such a busy pattern, I hid my seam easily.
I stapled the fabric to the ottoman in one spot.
Then I went to the opposite side of the ottoman. pulled the skirt fabric until I found the exact middle and stapled that middle spot to the exact opposite on the ottoman of the first staple. I now had my fabric evenly spaced around the ottoman.
I went to the 1/4 spot and found the middle and stapled. I went to the opposite side, found the middle and stapled.
I repeated that process until it looked like this.
I've always liked this ottoman when it's upholstered because I think it looks like a giant pin cushion! lol
Have a great day!
