Because we have three still fairly young children, we have leather living room furniture. It has seen better days since it is now eight-ish years old but it has survived a lot of baby puke, formula, crayons, and other rights of childhood passage. The couch survived well as did a leather ottoman until…my youngest daughter found a tiny tear and did this:
So, I had this big piece of what I think is sailcloth. I have already cut some of it for bags but I had a decent sized rectangle left. It was big enough to cover the top of the ottoman so I went for it.
I folded the edges over twice and sewed.
I then measured and decided that each corner needed 2.5″ triangle to create the edges.
Then, I realized that I didn’t square it to the bottom edge…oops. I had to sew it again and rip out the crooked line.
Turned out well for a very quick, easy project. Cheap, quick and makes a BIG difference!
Never pass up a great piece of fabric in the remnant bargain bin! You never know when it will come in handy!
Thanks for reading!
