3. Get out your vacuum cleaner and clean the couch. There will be treasures in there like food, dust, maybe money, and hopefully not bugs. Avoid tearing or otherwise damaging the filling while removing the old upholstery fabric and while cleaning.
4. The next step is cutting the fabric. You'll need to trace around the pieces that you removed. DO NOT cut the pieces exactly the size as the ones that you removed. YOU MUST cut them bigger. Now please do not say that I didn't warn you.
5. You are going to staple the fabric onto the frame of the couch. Use an electric staple gun. Again, don't say I didn't warn you.
6. It would be dishonest to say that I actually know how to sew couch cushions. However, they covered it in detail on Design Sponge.
