HOW TO FIX SNAGGED UPHOLSTERY (redux)

If you're a cat owner, you probably know the perils of your furniture being clawed. I've had the same couch and chairs for years and they've been looking a little worse for the wear. That is, until I had a stroke of genius (or perhaps uncommon sense) and decided to try two things.

For the squishy chairs with lots of padding, I used needle felting needles to poke the fabric back in. Here is my original tutorial.

Tools used:

Felting pads: http://amzn.to/2iQtZLc

After I fixed the chairs with the needles they got covered with a towel and haven't been touched since. Unfortunately that means Maria started taking out her aggression on the couch for the past two years, so I came up with a new plan and filmed another tutorial with a different method yesterday.

Tools used:

Clippers: http://amzn.to/2znxRtc

I hope you found these tutorials useful! If your cat is especially destructive, you can try shaving your furniture and then tucking the loose ends in with the needles afterwards.
