Repairing an Upholstered Chair

The fabric from the front arm panel got pulled out and I need to find a way to put it back in and have it stay. I have taken the photos from three different distances. Any suggestions on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.

You need to stitch from underneath, so the stitches wont show on top. Use short, even stitches and use a curved upholstery needle.

Hi,

I have had this done several times. If you can find a circular needle, it will be easy to stitch the fabric. I had a rental couch many years ago, and I was able to have it fixed before I finally paid it off completely.

This should be an easy fix. Here is a video to guide you through it:

Do not do what the person who had our arm chairs did to try to fix it (before we bought them) which was to use super glue or some kind of glue to put the seams together. We bought this awesome chair at an estate sale a few years ago and the minute we sat in it at home, the glue they used pulled away (they did that so we wouldn't see it when we bought it). I fixed stitched it up myself using the technique in this video...not my video mind you...I am NOT that savvy to make a video like this one).

So some tips...

-use thimbles so you don't get stuck.

-use the same color thread

-use the best light you can so you can see what you are doing

It took me about an hour to get mine right, but it is holding.

Hope yours is as easy a fix as mine was.

Take care!!
