Looks very nice. I want to try make covers for couches but always find it hard to find the right kind of fabric! Is that a sturdy or knit type of fabric?

It's a woven denim fabric that I got at a home dec fabric store, so it was really wide. I have enough left to cover the world :-) I also used zipper-by-the-yard from the same store (if you buy it, be sure to ask for the zipper pull, too).

Very nice job, I made mine out of uphostry fabric, however, it does hold the pet hair, I think the denim would be easier to care for. I have switched to using velcor in place of the zipper as it's easier for me to get on and off by myself.
