I would like to make a cover for this sofa ... can you give me some idea or a tutorial on how to do it? Thank you!
Have you checked out youtube yet? I searched their site with "reupholstering a couch" and saw a lot of videos of various ways to tackle this project. Kinda make me want to redo my couch! Good luck to you! Let us know how you do!
here are some videos https://www.pinterest.com/search/videos/?q=how%20to%20upholsterer%20sofa&rs=video
Thank you so much ... I'll check this out rigth now
hey! You gave me good luck, although I had searched YouTube you had not found the same type of furniture, which I think is a bit more difficult (the square shapes are easier to make the pattern) Thanks again !!
As the pieces of foam are not attached to the base of the couch, the technique for sewing a cover for them will be the same as sewing a cover for a free standing box-style cushion.
Options are to:
With option #2 the open part of the seam will have to be hand stitched closed after the cover is put on to the cushion. If you are not experienced in installing zippers, this may be easier for you than option #1
