How do I repair cigarette burns in a velvet sofa?
You will need to clean the area first and remove all the burned edges. After go to the back of the sofa or under the sofa to cut a piece of fabric. Place the fabric inside the hole and use a fabric glue to glue it in place. You may be able to find some iron on patches. I do belive they sold them before but I am not sure they still sell them now.
It will be difficult to make this spot 'disappear' but following professional instructions can make it less noticeable.
I believe it works best if you trim the burnt edges and then use fabric or fray glue to glue the edges on the under material before cutting a matching piece.
Let the glue dry completely and then cut a piece (from the back or hidden area) larger than your hole so you can trim it to fit as closely as possible.

Someone dropped a cigarette on my leather couch, it didn't burn a hole in it, but it left burn marks. I want to get those marks off. It's an offwhite leather and they were very expensive. Please help.
You might be able to cover it up a little with some shoe polish (white or beige) or maybe liquid paper. I would first try to put some shoe polish or lp in a place that doesnt show like the back of the sofa. It may not be an exact match but might cover it cosmetically. I have used liquid paper to cover flaws on white leather shoes. And i use shoe polish to cover scratches on my leather furniture.
How do I fix a cigarette burn on a suede couch?
I had to do this when my husband was a smoker :D I cut a piece of the cloth from the back bottom of the couch and sewed it into the hole. You really REALLY could not tell!
I have a couch that has 3 cigarette burns in the suede fabric. The couch is expensive and I would like to repair it myself or pay someone to do this. Where can I get help? Thank you.
You can do it if you have a scissors to cut away the burned portion, fabric glue, and scraps of the same fabric.
