How To: Do a Sofa Quick Fix

How To: Do a Sofa Quick Fix

The other night we looked down at the arm of our sofa and realized that we had been ignoring a huge problem. Cat scratch mania! We bought our sofa before our two cats came into our lives, and the fabric is the most tempting loopy fabric imaginable for hungry kitty claws. When it's time for a new sofa, we'll choose the fabric more wisely. We hadn't really thought about camouflage until we stumbled upon this quick fix on the Craftster forums

Armed with a glue gun and some felt, Craftster wristslapsandtoetaps set out to fix a tear created by her tiny, but strong-jawed pooch. We actually think she did a fantastic job here, but aren't sure about this solution for our own place — the applique might prove to be even more tempting for the cats. Have you temporarily repaired a torn sofa? We'd love to hear!
