Relacement Sofa Cushions - Replacement Sofa Cushions how to do it yourself

Whether your kids recently had a milk accident or you accidentally drop a sausage on your sofa, Always remember that you can replace a single cushions on your sofa. Replacement sofa cushions is not hard than you think. When you decide to make those replacements remember that the best material used for cushioning and to make you feel comfortable in your living room is foam. This material is a lot better than feathers or blown fiber because it doesn't change its shape after you put some weight or pressure on it. When using foam-based cushions it is also recommended to use a Dacron poly fiber wrap which will smooth the edges of your cushions and eliminate any bagginess in the fabric itself, this material is also very durable and gives a fresh look to your sofa and living room, not to mention you will feel a lot more comfortable with the look and feel of your furniture.

Here some tips that I found on ehow regarding replacement sofa cushions

  1. Find the right fabric to make a single cushion for your sofa. To help you find the exact match, either bring a sample of the fabric to the store or take a few detailed pictures of your couch to reference. If you can't find an exact match, try a two-tone effect by using a complimentary fabric pattern.
  2. Remove the upholstery from around the old cushion using a stitch ripper, and use the old upholstery as a pattern to model your new fabric. Depending on preference, you can either measure the original fabric pattern and then use those measurements to model a new cover, or you can simply lay the original upholstery on top of the new fabric and outline the pattern with chalk.
  3. Cut out the pattern from the new fabric.
  4. Use either a sewing machine or a needle and thread to sew your replica pattern together into a new cover.
  5. Wrap your old sofa cushions with your new fabric, and stitch it shut.

Please Remember !!

If you have a hard time remembering how to reassemble fabric patterns, try taking pictures of the old cushion after each line of stitches you remove. This way you will be able to remember how it was put together when you are reassembling the new one later.

When you are chalking out the outline of the original pattern on the new fabric, make sure that the new fabric is faced upside down so that you will not be able to see the lines after it is reassembled.

Its should work just follow the instruction and I guarantee that you will success. Good Luck !
