How to Fix a Rip in a Couch

Instructions

  1.jpg   Step 1

Thread a circular sewing needle with your thread. Pull the thread through the needle so that it is doubled, and knot the threads together at the end. I prefer to work with one foot of thread on the needle at a time as if the piece is too long, you will have more problems with tangled thread.

Starting at one end of the rip, insert your needle on the inside of the tear and pull the needle through. This will hide the knot on the inside of the fabric so you cannot see it.

Using a weaving motion, sew the rip by first inserting the needle into the rip and poking it through the fabric on one side, pull it through and then insert it through the rip again poking the needle through the fabric on the other side. Your sewing pattern is very much like lacing a shoe. Remember to make tiny stitches.

Continue sewing your rip to the end, making as tiny a stitch as possible. When you are done, pull the thread tightly and make one last stitch, this pulling the thread through the fabric a couple of inches from the tear. Then cut the thread as close to the fabric as possible.

Pinch the fabric where you cut off the thread with your fingers and pull the fabric so that the ends of the thread disappear into the sofa.

Things You’ll Need:

·                       Circular sewing needle

·                       Strong thread that matches the color of the fabric

        ·                       Time and patience

Leather Care & Cleaning

posted by Home & Office Furniture Desgin

Fine leather is soft and luxurious, making it an ideal choice for furniture. With the right care, leather improves with age, providing many years of enjoyable use. Even the best leather, however, is subject to damage. Different types of leather (see below) require different care and maintenance products. If you are uncertain about the type of leather you have, check with your sales representative or contact the store where you purchased the item. As a general rule of thumb, pretest all of the care products in a hidden area to make sure they are compatible with the leather. To maintain the rich, natural look of your leather furniture, we offer the following general recommendations:

  • Avoid using or placing sharp objects on leather goods. Leather is very durable, but not accident or damage proof.
  • Place your furniture a minimum of two feet from heat sources.
  • Protect your leather furniture from direct and even indirect sunlight. Some leathers, such as full and semi-aniline, will fade over time.
  • Avoid air pollution such as cigar or cigarette smoke and cooking fumes, which can cause leather to fade or change color.
  • Keep leather free from dust by dusting with a cloth, preferably once a week.
  • Clean leather with Leather Cleaner ( Available in supermarkets) , preferably once a month if the furniture is used daily. Minimally, this needs to be done four times a year. Don’t rub! Sponge gently until all grime and stains are absorbed.
  • Treat leather with Leather Protector/Conditioner after each cleaning, to retain its softness and attractive appearance.
  • Blot spills up immediately. Use Leather Cleaner to remove the spill. Please note: Many common household cleaning products can cause severe damage and costly repairs, and improper cleaning may void your Furniture Protection Plan.
