Reupholstering (info bit)

While writing about our new reupholstering project and the couch we did some time ago, I briefly mentioned my 'method' of pinning inside out, sewing and trying to get everything as snug as possible. I know it doesn't sound like a really good and professional method, but it works (more or less). There is a YouTube video of Joquena from Modernhomemakers, who has made a video of the method I also more or less use.

Although not every cushion (or wing chair part) is square, and you do not always have enough fabric to take the side all the way around (like when doing the couch), this video does give you the technique you can use and modify to your requirements.
