If you have a couch or other furniture that you love and don’t want to get rid of, consider reupholstering it. This process may take a long time to complete, but it will be well worth the work, especially when you use a fabric that you love. You may also want to take the time to inspect the cushions to see if any filling material needs to be replaced. By taking the time to reupholster and fill the cushions, your new couch will last for many more years. Big Z Fabric has thousands of fabrics available for upholstery purposes. You can view the vast collection online by searching for upholstery fabrics.

For this project, you will need to cut your fabric on the floor or a large table so you can roll it out. Simply use the old sofa cover as the pattern to cut your new fabric. You will need to sew your fabric and use a heavy-duty staple gun to attach the new fabric to the couch.
