Ottoman Makeover

Aline has another piece of furniture in her house that needs a makeover. Since we have leftover fabric from the beanbag project, we decided to use it to make a new cover for her ottoman. She gave me the dimensions of this ottoman, which was 15"(W) x 15"(L) x 14"(H)
I laid out the fabric and started marking away the dimensions with extra 1" for overlaps. And, cut.
And, hemmed.As for the bottom corners, I nipped of the corners diagonally, so I can fold them in and sew a neat corner.After hemming the edges, I sewed a niche for the cover to sit properly over the ottoman, and finished of the exposed edges by close stitches.Like every makeover projects, here's the before and after picture.
