« Part 3: Make your life easier. Part 4 of An Upholstery Primer series Part 5: Stuffing Seat Cushions »

Hey Refurbers,

Sorry for skipping ahead but I have long since upholstered the couch I was stripping in the other post. I didn’t have a camera crew available (my 11 year old daughter) and I needed both hands for the work.

You knew There was some sewing invloved in upholstery. I figured we could start with a throw pillow. In my case, they are back cushions to that couch I upholstered.

My daughter and I tried to film this series as best as we could on the I-Phone. You may have to turn up the volume but I promise I didn’t make any surprising noices or add any curse words. We went ahead and did one take of each and the videos are what they are.

Nice tutorial Mark, nice sewing machine too!

You make piping/whelting cord look so easy.

Thanks J.

I’m really happy with my old machine although I need to get the foot adjusted. It sits a little low. The machine has been in the family since 1968.

I was tickled by my little girl. She stopped filming me when I shot her with a little spray glue. She was trying to capture what she thought was important. When I saw all the wiggly video, I just smiled. She did a pretty good job and I think the videos convey the information well enough.

I’m a little rusty but that’s good for beginners. I’m not doing two steps simultaneously any more. It’s good to show an easier way. I certainly can’t do some of the things I used to without going off the map. ;)

Thanks very much for watching and it’s really good to hear from you sir!
