Burn Hole on Microfiber Couch

I have a small burn hole on a microfiber sofa. Any ideas on how to repair it would help very much!

Another thing to try is searching a fabric store for similar fabric, take a bit and do tiny slice and dice to particle size pieces. Also cut up into tiny pieces is "Stitch Witchery", it comes on the bolt or small spool like tape.

You might do good using manicure scissors for doing the tiny cutting or a razor pen/knife (X-acto). Sprinkle into the hole both mediums together (mixed) and hold a steam iron above this on "steam", DO NOT touch any surface with the iron.

The steam will seal the fabric fibers in the glue of the stitch witchery and "glue" it. This is meant for fabrics of all kinds. If you need to reinforce with the iron touching, turn the iron temp "down" and use parchment paper (the baking kind) over the top. This will help shield the fabric.

I have repaired many "whoops" things this way, car seats, clothing, furniture, etc. You can commercially buy kits like this, but hey, a dollar spent will get you your fix.
