Difficult as it may seem, you can repair your sofa cushion cover on your own! Explore the article to know how to repair a sofa cushion cover.
Are you afraid to put that velvety cushion cover in the washing machine? Worry not, as there are many an upholstery shampoos available in the market. You can hand wash your favorite cushion cover and retain its lost mien. A good vacuum can also work magic.
If you find small tear or torn seams in the cushion cover, you can very well mend it even without taking off the cover. Select the thread that matches the predominant color of the sofa cover and using a needle whipstitch the torn seams and edges of the cushion cover. Take care to turn the edges of the fabric inside and lock those using small neatly spaced stitches.
You can either get a pre-manufactured welting available at any fabric store or any other fabric that matches with your cushion cover. Sew the fabric covering around the rope either using a sewing machine or by hand. If you are working on a sewing machine, stitch a sleeve for the rope inside out so that while inserting the rope inside, you get the right side outside. However, if you are doing it with hand, carefully pinch the edges of the cushion inwards towards the rope, as you whipstitch the fabric in place. Then stitch the welting to the edges of the cushion using matching thread.
