I wove 20 yards of cotton fabric to be used to recover my couch cusions.  I used 10/2 and 5/2 cotton  in a pattern from "A Weaver's Book of 8-shaft Patterns" (#694) and ironed Pellon interfacing to all of the fabric to give it stability and body.  The project spanned 5 years of on and off weaving including several time-outs for surgery.  Luckily, I have two looms.  The couch was built by my husband from logs on our property.  BTW, I am now weaving only small projects!

It looks very professional - and completely home-made, how satisfying!
