Hi guys, I am here to share my experience in repairing our old couch at home. I was actually thinking of having it disposed of but I decided to mend it myself to use it on the other side of our home.
At first, I could have not thought how to begin it myself but I watched the YouTube videos and read some forums to make it through. I can’t say, it was easy but it was really an amazing activity for me as I finished it in almost 2 to 3 weeks.
I canvassed for the best quality but affordable fabric for the sofa and I purchased foam as a replacement to the old one. We always want to have a soft sofa for the safety of our children too. The wood forming the couch must be well-covered to avoid any accident when someone bumped into it especially our toddler.
Always remember that you have to find out the specific spaces where you’re going to patch your new fabric. It is best for you to check if the woods are not damaged yet and have no termites too.
You may use a gun tucker to support the foam you’re patching on the wood.
Before you patch your fabric, scrutinize the textile around the hole. You may decide that you need a bigger patch to coat any frays in the area.
Because the patch is larger than the hole it’s covering, pin around the edges, pinning through the patch and the garment underneath.
And, here’s the result…
See how a beginner like me did it.
I know I can improve it in the future…
