My beloved cats (I have two) consider my sofa to be their scratching post. So I bought some fabric and sewed covers for the sofa arms :-)
I am very pleased with the result, BUT I don’t like the color I chose – I don’t think it matches the sofa fabric too well. Also one of the covers is shorter than the other because at first I made the short one and then I thought I should make it longer… Well, now I know what length to make next time! The cats will probably wreck it anyway!
I will probably make them again in a different fabric. The easy choice would be a natural colored cotton (undyed). Or I might find some other crazy upholstery fabric to try…
The last photo is of the sofa with the cat claw damage… :-P
Tell me what you think!
1.5 meters of heavy dark blue denim cotton – I used the wrong side.
