A hole or tear in the upholstery of a sofa chair does not indicate it is time. Fixing the hole before it gets too big or frayed extends the upholstery and the chair’s life. You may make the repair almost invisible by selecting the repair method and patching materials.

Patching With Glue

Fabric glue and heavy fabric that matches the upholstery gives a simple solution for rips and smaller holes. Position a patch of fabric underneath the tear and coat it with a thin coating of cloth adhesive. Only press on the flaps down until smooth. Permit the glue to dry before putting any strain on the fabric. This repair works best when the borders of fabric match, if the patch color blends in with the color or pattern of this sofa seat fabric but you can spot under holes.

Sewing It Collectively

Sewn repairs will be best suited to holes across the stitches in the sofa chair. Pull the edges of the fabric until they match and then fold the raw edge under. Utilize thread and a curved upholstery needle to sew the hole’s two borders . Sewing across the fold leaves the repair less noticeable once you tie off the end and pull the thread tight.
