This couch was from my clients friend. She called me because it needed a new life. The fabric was wearing through on the cushion fronts...so she put the zipper side out to make it last a little longer. The back cushions were quite a bit saggy, so I had her pick up a bag of quilt batting for when I brought the slipcover back. I took the old covers off and wrapped the batting around the insert and then put the old covers back on. Then I put the new slipcover cushions on...that way when she takes the slipcover off to get it cleaned, the batting is contained and not all over the place.
