I bought this very tatty, but sturdy sofa from a local charity shop and decided to recycle it. I loved this brocade fabric when I saw it in my local fabric shop at £3.00 per metre (a great bargain!) and some piping cord and here’s the end result.
This is the first re-upholstery I have done, so there are little flaws, but I loved it and I might have to do my other sofa now (even though it doesn’t need it yet :-)).
12 metres of fabric, 20 metres of piping cord, thread
