Covering holes on my couch

JlnattyV Smith


I have a microfiber sectional couch and my dog scratched two big holes in the fabric. Is there an inexpensive way to fix?

    If your sofa is backed up to a wall, you can remove the fabric from the back and patch the holes. You can recover the back of the sofa in a fabric that is close to a match in color.

    If you either have enough fiber (say from arm covers or "head rest" covers) or can find fiber to match, try this method:

    You didn't mention how large the holes are, so hard to judge if this would be a practical approach. I would have a professional upholsterer come over and ask for a quote on how much to recover the seats in matching fabric. It might be worthwhile rather than shopping for a new sofa and training lessons for your doggy.
