Can someone help me figure out how to patch my ripped sofa?

Recommended Posts

I scored these really pretty couches from Craigslist the other day. They are down filled (if that helps) and some of the cushion covers have rips. I was thinking of getting some fabric and patching the holes but what type of fabric do I get? Is there a special adhesive I could use instead (I don't sew well at all)


Any ideas? Thanks :)post-16501-0-62090000-1353527524_thumb.jpg

That's a fairly common pattern, I bet you could find something similar. It could be a sort of shabby chic look with a mix of English florals.

Can you use fabric from the undersides of the cushions and put a different one on the bottom?

If you don't sew maybe a good iron and heavy duty fabric glue to put it together?

Slip cover?

I'm going for the shabby chic look :) I don't mind patching it with a similar or contrasting fabric. I love the design so I don't want to slipcover it.


I'm going to try to get to the fabric store tonight and see if I can find something. I want to protect it before the holes get bigger.
