I have seen a lot of these sofas floating around the world wide web lately on pinterest and facebook so I started digging around to see if I could find a good DIY tutorial. I actually could not find any DIY project tutorials on specifically how to do a patchwork re-upholstery of a sofa! If you find one, please send me the link.

What I discovered though is that these couches are actually being sold for thousands of dollars at several high end boutique stores. So, here’s the work around… you just need to understand the basics of how to re-upholster furniture in general. Then with some basic sewing skills you can patchwork together your fabric first, then begin the re-upholster process.

Here’s some great resources to help you understand the re-upholster process. First, take a look here and here. Good guides for beginners.

I also found this guide on doing a patchwork chair which you can use as a model for a larger project like a sofa.

I also found some great videos at the Modern Homemakers blog. Here’s the first video in her series below… (Here’s the link to parts 2-6 as well)

    The one in your picture is AWESOME but I would NEVER think to combine a regular “red, white and blue” with neon colors! Or are those jewel tones? ROFL!! I wish I was color blind, sometimes, so I would have an excuse!!

    It was really nice to see the patchwork sofa as it brought back happy memories from years ago as when me and my hubby (now not then) first set uplivin together we had an old arm chair that was abit worse for wear and at the time id just got into patchwork and so decided to cover the chairin it. So seein this as i said brought back happy times and who’d of known i was on tread years before it became so .
