Instead, I decided to re-fill the cushions with some Poly-fil. Most couches like mine have a “hidden” zipper at the bottom of each cushion. I simply ordered a 5 lb. box of Poly-fil from Amazon for about $20 and set to work. It took me approximately 20 minutes to stuff and squish each cushion back
Piping (or welting if you prefer) adds a nice detail to DIY upholstery projects, and gives added tailoring to cushions and headboards. Choose the same color as your main upholstery fabric, or a fun contrasting color for more zip. It’s also easy and quick to make.
