 Slipcover Tips

What is the best Welt Cording for Slipcovers?

  • Cellulose Welt Cord works perfect, it is soft but not mushy and is machine washable and does not shrink.

Should you pre-wash the fabric before making a slipcover?

  • Cut a 12″x 12″ piece of the slipcover fabric, serge the edges and wash it on hot and dry it on hot.  Then measure the square to determine the percent of shrinkage.  I also mark the direction of the fabric (selvage to selvage and roll out from the bolt) this will help you know which way the fabric is shrinking and to decide if it need to be pre-washed.
