I have a lot of quilts lying about my house or hanging on the walls. I think it's pretty clear that I like the look of patchwork, but this is ridiculous.
Our couch got a fist sized hole so I cut a patch out of a cushion that I made the manufacturer replace...they had sent us a brand new couch with popped seams and homegirl don't play-I demanded a perfect cushion. Yeah, I'm that
lady...but I'm nice about it. I had kept the busted cover in case I needed a patch. Call it mother-of-3-boys-intuition.
This is what the hole looked like. Our dog is to blame. The salt in my wound was having to clean up hours later when his body...umm...rejected the leather-ish substance and polyester padding. In case you're concerned, he's still alive. He's 10 years old and has a mystery disease that messes up his liver and makes him pee on the carpet all the time and now he's eating my furniture. Let's not forget his body rejects
a lot of substances besides just leather and polyester. That's a lot to deal with, no? He is testing me on Proverbs 12:10
Anybody got any tips on repairing leather (ish substances)???
How about gluing a patch on?ReplyDelete
Well, I am glad to see you are taking care of the fur baby in spite of his problems!ReplyDelete
If you figure it out, I have a green leather couch with a rip in it. I just cover the rip with a quilt over it. Oh well.ReplyDelete
