How to Restuff Ikea Ektrop Sofa "BACK CUSHIONS" - AND an Update on my Seat Cushions
The most popular post on my blog by far is "How to Restuff Ikea Ektrop Sofa Cushions Cheap, Easy and Quick", which I blogged almost 2 and a half years ago.
And no amount of fluffing can fix those sags easily.
(Although, another sneaky tip is to turn them round. They look a lot better having been flat against the back of the lounge. For a little while, anyway, until they sag again.)
INSERT BRIGHT IDEA!
What if I cut the pillow in half, creating two long narrow pillows that I could put in the tops of my couch cushions. The pillow was the perfect length.
Then I cut down the centre of the pin lines.
Next, I repinned them for sewing, tucking in the seams so they couldn't fray should I need to wash them.
Note: If you can find a lumber pillow insert of a similar size, you could also use that instead.
And in case you were wondering, I am in love with the Lofallet Beige colour covers I purchased 6 weeks ago. (Full post here.) They really do hide a lot of our pet hair (even though I vacuum regularly), and any grubby marks are far less noticeable.
So how are my stuffed seat cushions standing up after almost 2 and a half years?
(See original post here.)
I haven't noticed any major deflation and as I've said before,
they do fluff up a bit again when you take the covers off for washing.
I am extremely happy with these quick, cheap and easy fixes for my couches.
